So, we have this precious baby. They are so adorable. We love them!  Now what do we do with them?  ha ha.  They have more going on inside than we think and so how do we stimulate and entertain them?

When I had my first, there was a lot of hype of black and white for babies and geographical patterns.  They made mobiles out of this or there were cards you placed by baby for them to look at.  Ever heard of this?

I would hold my baby and go walking in my house.  We'd walk up to a picture and I would hold him so he was in front of it and you could see his little eyes scanning it.  We'd pause like that for a few minutes and I'd move onto something else.  Sounds weird but I read that this is a good way to stimulate a newborn so they see things and are thinking.

I believe in taking the baby along with me for any chore outside the house (once they're over a month), because I think every such opportunity is sensory stimulation and change of scene for them. I also liked to hand them over to a y visiting relatives, especially grandparents so that they could observe and listen to people other than mom and dad. I'd also play music on a portable speaker.

I also liked the play gym I got for my younger one. she would play in it for about 10-15 mins at a stretch. also the rocker. I'd place th rocker in our balcony for her to get some light and look outside. would also take her to the pool
