You Can Help Your Baby Learn

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

You can do many things to encourage your baby’s learning and successful
development. These are easy things to do. You can just have fun
with your baby, and he will learn. You can just be a parent, and your baby
can just be a baby.

Here are things you can do:

  • Give your baby things to play with. Babies like to hold things and put
    them in their mouths. Help your baby play with new toys and objects.
    Make sure what you give your baby is safe. (Never give your baby a
    balloon or a plastic bag to play with. He can choke on these things.)
  • Give your baby things to look at. Brightly colored mobiles over a crib
    help his vision develop. Hang the mobiles high enough so that your
    baby can’t pull them down. You can also show pictures of faces to your
    baby.
  • Talk to your baby and read to your baby. Use a kind voice.
  • Respond when your baby cries. This helps him learn that he can
    communicate to make his needs known.
  • Take your baby to different places and let him see different things.
  • Touch your baby and cuddle him. Make sure he knows you love him. Talk softly and calmly. Be soothing.
