Interaction is Important for Your Baby’s Development
The first three years of life are extremely important in the long-term development of young children. You can jump start your babies emotional and intellectual development by providing the right kind of stimulation.
Facial expressions, like playing peek-a-boo, or smiling can begin to stimulate your baby’s brain from a very early age.
Reading to a baby can provide stimulation and the basic building blocks of speech and language development.
Touching various types of fabrics, shape blocks and even playing with water during bath time can help develop a baby’s motor skills as well as stimulate their brains.
Hugs, kisses and other positive interactions can help stimulate your baby’s brain and provide emotional support so your baby feels secure.
There is a fine line between providing enough stimulation to your baby and too much. Soothing music is a great way to stimulate your baby’s brain while at the same time calming them before they go to sleep.The best way to make sure your baby is getting enough stimulation is to fill their environment with books, colorful objects and pay toys of all different sizes and shapes.
