Stimulate Infant Brain Development
Match Experiences to Mental Abilities of Child
6-12 months try playing peek a boo with baby, read picture books to baby, and letting baby imitate actions. It would not be effective to show flash cards to baby or try to have them read as that is way over their comprehension level.
Practice Makes Perfect
Actively Involve the Baby
-taking walks with baby
-go shopping together
-see new things (zoo)
Variety, but not Overloading
-being cuddled or held by multiple people
-constantly being in public
Avoid Pushing Child
-being involved into too many extra curricular activities, making them do a sport they aren't interested in, and constantly pushing child to be better, over exceedingly.
