Did you know that…..
babies fear from strangers from 8 months of age ?

During the oral stage (first year old) the baby is relatively passive; its needs are for care and nourishment.

And, did you know that the infants come to gain sphincter control around 18 months of age ?.

These data vary from child to child, for even being completely normal children, the rate of development or maturation may be different. Therefore, in principle not be alarmed if your child does not do exactly what we have referred across ages.
