Understanding the development of cognition in infants and toddlers informs many aspects of our understanding of human cognition. Designing research to address such questions with infants and toddlers provides a number of logistical and theoretical challenges. These challenges inspire innovative experimental methods and techniques. Here we outline some of the key methods and innovations used to investigate early cognitive development in this special population. We then discuss some of the research considerations and best practices to successfully study this fascinating and important topic.
