Our first post for Baby School!
I couldn’t wait to start Baby School when I was pregnant with Busy Bee. All the activities for engaging and stimulating a baby are so fun. But of course, in the early months I could only do Infant Stimulation.
What is Infant Stimulation? Here is an excerpt from Health First
“For babies, playing stimulates their senses, and helps them learn and develop. Playing with your baby — or infant stimulation — includes activities that arouse or stimulate your baby’s sense of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell.
Infant stimulation can improve your baby’s curiosity, attention span, memory, and nervous system development. In addition, babies who are stimulated reach developmental milestones faster, have better muscle coordination, and a more secure self image.”
When I first started with Infant Stimulation, it seemed boring. Busy Bee did not respond much. However, as he grew, he smiled back and make those cute gaga, ahah sounds. It was totally exciting.
Here are some of the activities we did and my learning objectives for him.
