Netflix Documentary Follows Fifteen Babies From Birth To One Year

The Netflix docuseries follows fifteen different babies from their first moments of life until they turn one.

Netflix has released the trailer for their new documentary show 'Babies' and it looks amazing. Netflix has become such an intrinsic part of my self-care journey. When I say "Netflix and Chill" I literally mean that I cannot wait to watch Netflix, and chill. I need that me-time in the evenings, a simple twenty-five-minute episode of a documentary or series has the power to transport me. After a long day of parenting, working and managing a household I cannot wait to switch off and enjoy the ultimate escapism.

According to Netflix, the 'Babies' docuseries "explores the groundbreaking science that reveals how infants discover life during their very first year" and if the trailer is anything to go by, it's going to be pretty special.

This is not Netflix' first foray into the world of babies. In 2016 they launched "The Beginning Of Life: The Series". The documentary-style series explored the connection between the environment and infant development. It detailed the developments in technology and neuroscience and how they impact infants and consequentially the future of humanity.

In the trailer for 'Babies', we can see a similar theme in that science and technology play a big role. In one scene we can see the elation and shock as new parents are caught off guard by their baby taking their first steps and in the next, we can see a computer program analyzing the movements of a wobbly toddler who is learning to walk confidently.

The Netflix docuseries follows fifteen different babies from their first moments of life until they turn one. It chronicles and explores their development in a beautiful way. The emotional documentary was filmed over the course of three years and involves expert analysis from medical professionals who give incredible insights on everything from nutrition and sleep to emotional connection and bonding.

'Babies' is released on Netflix on the 21st of February and we can't wait to get stuck in.
