Observation

Some fun things for your baby to observe that don’t need lots of toys!

Sight

  • Light and dark
  • Colour
  • Movement

Hearing

  • Volume
  • Types of sounds
  • Speech
  • Music
  • Direction

Smell

  • Foods
  • Outside 

Touch

  • Shape
  • Texture
  • Hard and soft
  • Wet and dry

Taste

Don’t do this for at least the first 6 months!  Babies are highly focused on sweet because that is what the calories they need for growing taste like.  One of the advantages of breastmilk is that it changes in flavour depending on the mother’s diet, so babies are already used to a variety of flavours from the family foods.  Babies have far more taste buds than adults, so don’t put too much flavour in their food.
