All babies are equipped with an inquisitive mind and a desire to discover the world. During the first year, they experience the incredible speed of the surrounding sensations. If you give him the opportunity to improve, he will reward you with the new skills. Let’s take a look at how to prepare a baby for a sensible environment to develop his senses and how to awaken interest in him.
Every child needs the stimuli of the surroundings and of you to develop properly. Although it does not seem to respond at all, it is the other way around. He perceives everything around him. As it grows, its perception range increases. Therefore, by means of various stimuli and activities, we can enable him to get to know the world better in a fun and educational way. Babies have an innate desire to learn and to improve. Support him, show him the way and let him try everything himself. Help him, share joy with him. Your presence and interest are the best you can give the baby
Hints and Tips Before Playing
- Choose a suitable time for activities . It is good for the baby to be well-tuned, not hungry and sleepy.
- If you see a child concentrating, don’t disturb him in his activity. If it was still disturbed, it could have a concentration problem in the future
- Show the baby what you want him to do | and then let him do the thing (thing) and explore. Then return to the activity and see how your child is getting better.
- Always give your baby new impulses for example, keep changing toys, rattles …

- Always focus on more skill areas. Practice together motor development, eye and hand coordination, physical activity, or language skills. (speak to the child while you are working, point and so on).
- And don’t forget our most important advice and experience. Never compare your child with others !!!! Every baby is an original and has a speed and a way of learning. What makes it slower will catch up with something else where it will stand out. Leave his pace to him.
Children learn best what they experience or appropriate activities from birth to three months
Perception of the senses begins in the baby immediately after birth. She feels her mother’s smell, the taste of milk and the warmth of her embrace. This period is the fastest stage of development. We will support it with the following activities:
- Hiding. Show the toy to the baby and then hide again, ask him where the toy is and pull it out again.
- Playing the ball. Use the big ball to swing on it together. Leave it on your tummy and gently make circles or arcs with the ball. This activity is good for practicing all muscles. Always hold the child firmly.
- Tickling. Tick the baby on your tummy, then on your leg and on your hands.
- Cook my mouse … Call the nursery and show her the story. You will see that the baby will be thrilled.
- Listening to music. Play music during the day. It is best to use a maximum of two tools. For example, try piano pieces. Children love them.
