The Amazing Newborn

What very young babies can do and see and respond to. This classic production shows how normal infants aged 1-7 days can see and have visual preferences, turn their heads in response to spoken words, mimic and move in rhythm to parental voices. It also shows the six states of consciousness first observed by Peter Wolff. The sequences selected condense hours of actual observation and illustrate the wonderful potentialities of newborns.

Viewer guide: This is a classic film made in 1977. The imagery is of that period and the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This does not diminish the quality of the informative content.
