    Not sure if this is even on the right track, but what about physical development needs such as toys or things that will encourage them to crawl or a door bouncer that will strengthen their leg muscles. Or toys that encourage their hand and eye coordination.

    Reading stories to them to keep them calm and sleep well, baby's work stuff out in their sleep so a good nights sleep is important.

    On the point of sleep, I guess their sleeping environment is also essential to physical needs, such as room temp, comfort etc

    Just some ideas, not sure if that's what your assignment is looking for but best of luck with it.

    You're in luck, I've got a Health and Social book out next to me, as I'm trying to write my essay lol..

    So, for an Infant aged 0-2 years, the physical needs stated are:

    -Food (balanced diet i.e correct amounts of formula, good quality breast milk due to mothers diet)
    -Warmth
    -Water from parents
    -Medical support / vaccination for long-term protection
    -Sleep
    -Protection from injury and disease
    -Breathable air

    Hope this helps hun!! If you need any more help, I can try and dig out my old health and social work x
