Learned Behavior of Babies

By Prev Info - February 18, 2022

Your bundle of joy is an individual from birth. In the first 2 years of life, your baby will develop a mental foundation that will affect his behavior throughout life. notes that only 1 year after birth, an infant's brain will have grown from 400 grams to about 1,000 grams. While genetics also plays a key role, many of the behaviors and characteristics your baby learns are impacted by you, as a parent.

Behavior of Babies

Emotional Resilience

Your baby's intellectual growth is affected by the emotional quality of the relationship you have with him, as his parent and caregiver. Infants learn emotional resilience by developing trust and intimacy with their parents. Learning to be emotionally enriched helps your baby grow up to have an openness to learning, problem-solving and the ability to process and understand emotions with intelligence and compassion. These learned behaviors give your baby both emotional and intellectual success.

Healthy Bonding

 reports that at about 8 weeks after birth, your baby's vision improves and he can make direct eye contact for the first time. This marks a turning point in his emotional development because he can see your face clearly. Gazing at his parent's face and seeing a mutual returned gaze gives a baby feelings of joy and excitement. This emotional interaction helps a baby form secure attachments to his parents or primary caregiver, and learn how to form a nonverbal emotional relationship with them. Developing a healthy early attachment affects how your baby will interact and communicate with others, and form relationships later in life.

Social Skills

Your baby was born to be a social being and eagerly looked for cuddling, rocking, touching, soothing, singing and talking from birth. Your baby primarily seeks these forms of sensory stimulation from you as his parent and you soon learn what his preferences are. reports that sensory interactions help to stimulate your child's brain to form neuronal connections -- links between brain and nervous system -- that will help him form social bonds with others as a baby and even later in life.


It may be difficult to say "no" when your baby gives you a cherubic little smile; however, even in the first year of life, your baby is learning to understand discipline. This means that he is beginning to learn the word "no" and understand cues of when you are upset or disapprove of something. Your baby also begins to understand when he should be quiet and when it is acceptable to make noise. 

 at this age, babies learn to understand your command by learning cause and effect. They note patterns of what happens when they do certain things. Hence, it is important that you are consistent and firm but gentle when telling him "no" if he is doing something unsafe. Developing attachment is important to give your baby a sense of security.
