A baby is a very young human being, an infant, from birth to a couple of years old. It can refer to any very young animal, especially a vertebrate; many species have specific names for their babies, such as kittens for the babies of cats, puppies for the babies of dogs, and chicks for the babies of birds.

It is also a term of endearment for a girlfriend or boyfriend or a form of address to a man or a woman considered to be attractive.

Etymology
