Here we narrow in on three toys that you and your newborn will love plus trustworthy sites you can refer to for more information.

How can I play with my newborn?

When people say "playing with your newborn," they don't mean running around the house, playing sports or board games; they mean small tasks that not only aid in developing learning skills in the brain, but creating a bond between parent (or sibling, etc), bond with the new family addition. Playing with your newborn helps create a sense of trust between you and him/her, and allows them to recongize who you are as a caring person in their life. The more secure and cared for they feel, the quicker they learn. If you just talk to your newborn, they will begin to understand words and phrases, which will help later on when they learn to talk. By making silly faces and laughing, they learn different facial expressions and what each can mean. The key is being patient with your baby.
