Baby Activities – Week 14
Books and stories are great for fostering language development. You can make stories even more exciting by incorporating movement. You can act out motions yourself, like Goldilocks eating the porridge, or you can help your baby move along by gently pedaling her feet as Goldilocks runs away from the three bears.
A stimulating environment can help children adjust to changes as they grow older, and can help their senses develop more quickly, according to numerous studies. If you have other children, give them the fun task of entertaining the baby, or ask a willing neighborhood “mother’s helper” or cousins to help. It’s a win-win for you and your baby.
Watch your baby closely. If he begins to get over stimulated, take a break from playtime.
