Let’s Play Together
Babies love to laugh and giggle, so they will enjoy and respond to anything a parent or carer can do to make them laugh.
Reading books once a baby can focus is so much fun, the beginning of the enjoyment of story time for many years to come. Explore sensorial books which provide touch, feel pictures and lift the flap pictures, for little ones from approximately 9 months on wards.
Building up, stacking cups and blocks and crawling round the floor pushing toy cars, buses, trains and lorries, is fun and you’ll find Daddies are particularly good at this, baby girl’s love this activity too.
Swimming with your baby is a great way to encourage one-to-one fun and attention along with freedom of movement and further sensorial experience.
Once your baby is four to six weeks old it is more or less essential to take him out and about in his pram and also good exercise for you. It is recommended that if possible a pram where your baby faces you so they see your face from birth is preferable (see the article we have below).
