The Extraordinary Mother needs 15 minutes every day to do a stimulation activity with her infant!
An infant stimulation program can improve a baby's curiosity, attention span, memory, and nervous system development. Newborn babies who are stimulated reach developmental milestones faster, have better muscle coordination, and a more secure image. However, an infant stimulation program is not only about infant brain development, but the building of a stronger, more loving, secure relationship between you and your newborn.
Infant Stimulation Activity 1: Touch
Present you baby with experiences that foster learning and growth. The best way for your infant to learn is by holding him and playing with him. The interaction is the thing! Let’s start with TOUCH, or tactile stimulation. Stroke you newborn often. Caress him across the forehead, down his cheek, across his neck, down his arm, and into his hand – repeat for the other side. Then bring him in for a cuddle.
