Now that the baby has arrived in a big new world, he is keen to get to know it better. The most important person is of course the mother, whom the baby greets radiant with joy. The wider environment is also just waiting to be discovered – with all the senses.

When adults speak, their mouth movements are imitated, and friendly faces are also rewarded with a first beaming little smile!
