Navigating a new baby can be tough. Especially if it’s your first baby.
Learning to read babies cues is huge and then there’s the added pressures of breastfeeding vs bottle, routine vs no routine, the list goes on.
The last thing you think about is baby’s development. Or maybe you do and you get overwhelmed with all the advice out there.
Quick facts on your baby’s brain:
* Did you know that a babies brain is made up of cells which based on experiences develop vital connections in the brain that influence babies emotional, social and intellectual development?
* The way these cells connect depends on baby’s experiences – interacting with others, stimulating senses, singing, reading and active play.
This makes me want to engage in some kind of developmental activity, what about you?
What can you do to help your baby’s brain develop?
Lets simplify it.
There are many things you can do to continue in baby’s development, however simple every day experiences can help shape your baby’s brain, how easy is that?!
Involve baby in your day to day activities, meet up with friends, sing and read, go for walks and explore the great outdoors.
Enjoy the fact that everything you do is something new for your baby PLUS it assists in their development!
