referring to children

Just wondering. In the language of your choice...

Are male babies referred to as "men" or "boys?" (or some other term, and if so, how would you define it?)

Are female babies referred to as "women" or "girls?" (or some other term, and if so, how would you define it?)

and finally, is the word for "boys" also the name for anything else, as in "children?"
