Things To Do with Your Baby

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

Your baby stays awake longer now. That
means he has more time to explore his world. He is still learning about his body, so he may play
with his hands or touch his own eyes, nose, mouth and chin.

He is more involved in his
surroundings. He no longer waits for someone to smile or speak to him. He seeks out faces,
then smiles and babbles. Here are some activities that will help your baby learn more about
the world around him:

  • Take your baby outside and sit under a tree. He will enjoy
    watching birds and seeing lights and shadows as they move through the trees. He can hear new
    sounds, too, like rustling leaves, birds calling and the engines of cars and airplanes.
  • Cradle your baby in your lap, and support his back and head with your arms. Gently rock him
    back and forth while you sing.
  • Help your baby learn to roll by placing your hands under
    his shoulders. Gently rock him back and forth. Talk to him while you are doing this.
  • Whisper in your baby’s ear. Talk to your baby about things and make different sounds – like
    a moo, a bark, a meow or a peep.
