Productivity Commission is ignoring everything we know about babies

The Productivity Commission has ignored the fact that babyhood matters and is a vital part of early education.

Babies are pretty useless really. Human ones, that is. Compared with animal counterparts, they just don’t rate. It takes a few weeks for our babies to even manage their own heads without assistance. A few more months to sit up unaided. They don’t get the whole being a biped thing till they are around one. They can’t string a few words together into a sentence for another year after that.
