Child Development: Brain Development in Toddlers

Child Development: Brain Development in Toddlers

It's in the first few years of life that our brains do the most developing. Here are some geeky facts...

In a baby's first year, their brain doubles in size, becoming half the size it will eventually be as an adult. That's a lot of development in one year; no wonder they sleep so much! By the age of 2, a toddler's brain will be using the same amount of energy as yours. By the age of 3, a toddler's brain will be using twice as much energy as yours. This is the busiest time for a developing human brain. It stays this busy pretty much constantly, until the age of around 9 or 10, when it begins to slow down until around the age of 18, where it reaches an adult level.
