Fun things to do this month

Here are a few ideas of what you can do to stimulate your baby this month.

  • Point out and name objects
  • Take him for a walk in a pram – now that he can be propped up in a sitting position, he would enjoy exploring the environment
  • Rock your baby and dance around the room with her to strengthen her neck
  • Help your child to become aware of her toes by putting them into her mouth
  • Invest in a baby gym which has objects your baby can hit, pull, squeeze and swing
  • Buy bath toys
  • Introduce your baby to strangers
