Newborn Sight & Sound

To initiate learning activities to encourage baby’s sense of sight and hearing, introduce a new born-safe baby rattle at playtime. You can move a bright colourful rattle across baby’s line of vision so that she learns to track moving objects. The gentle sound of a rattle can also help your little one identify sounds with objects. You can do the shaking yourself or put the rattle in baby’s hand and help shake it. This way coordination between vision and hearing will develop as baby learns to turn towards the sound. Also remember that when you offer something to your baby at two months they won’t reach for it if offered from the front. Always hand them objects from the side.
