Unschooled From Birth

Most people never think about this when they wonder about unschooling, but every child has been unschooled to some extent for at least a part of its life.
From birth to the first schooling experience, all children spend the phase of their lives in which they learn the most outside the confinement of the classroom, away from the teachers eye. Often without any externally applied force, course or direction, even in the most conventional families. Yet this is a time where children learn to walk, talk, eat, use the toilet... in short everything that lays the path upon which they will walk for the rest of their mortal lives.
If these tremendous steps come so natural and without guidance to every child on our planet, is it then so hard to imagine they can learn all other skills they might possibly need in life in the same manner?
