    Re: HELP with my project PLEASE

    "Babies" is a pretty broad topic. I'm tempted to refer you to the "Single Spoke Sub-Header" thread (:::::ducking::::::).

    I think that mapping out an entire course syllabus is a bit above and beyond the traditional English as a Second Language assistance, but what the heck, here's a thought:

    I find the various reflexes that a baby is born with quite fascinating. For example: the Protective Reflex...put a cloth over the face of a healthy newborn, and he will instinctively turn his head from side to side to dislodge it. The Root Reflex...stroke a baby on a corner of its mouth and it will automatically turn his head in that direction and try to suckle. The Grasp Reflex...stroke the palm of a baby's hand and he will close his fingers into a grasp.

    There are many other reflexes that come naturally to newborns, and the baby's pediatrician uses these to check the child for any possible neurological or developmental disorders.

    You could also probably add an interesting section to your project looking at the various stages of development a baby goes through before it is born.
