Stimulating activities this month

Here is a list of fun activities for you and your baby this month.

  • Repeat the sounds your baby makes.
  • Show your baby his reflection in a mirror.
  • Use her name often.
  • Play peek-a-boo.
  • Encourage standing games.
  • Give him toys with moving parts and different textures.
  • Roll a ball and encourage her to catch it.
  • When your baby is in a prone position or lying on her back, hold up toys just out of her reach. This will encourage her to lift her head.
  • Encourage her to feed herself. Finger foods such as rice cakes are most suited.
  • Copy your baby’s babbling.
