The baby of 1~3 months seems to understand nothing. Feeding, licking, bathing, and touching every day, in addition to big eyes and small eyes, what else can you do?
1.Listen and say children’s songs
Choose some simple and interesting children’s songs to tell the children every day that the last word of each sentence should be easy to pronounce, or you can record it to your child. It is best to have expressions and movements when listening to children’s songs. Mothers can shake their children and walk around with their children rhythmically.
Try to have your child imitate after repeating it many times. Children’s participation not only promotes their understanding of gestures and expressions, but also increases their interest. I know to play with small animals, vehicles and other image toys, let the children know the name of the toy.
2.Parents say baby language
The parents of newborn babies like to talk to their children with the words “un-gu-gu” and “bu-be-bu”. These words seem to be meaningless in the eyes of others, but they actually help the baby’s brain development. When the baby hears the parents consciously talking to them, the brain becomes more active.
When the child is awake, sing or chat with him, call his name, use simple, vivid words. Exaggerated reactions to the child’s expressions, voices, and body movements. He may not seem to respond, but you still have to do something. Brain filling, “Baby, mom is going to change diapers for you now.” “Baby, I am a mother, mom~mother~”, “Yeah, are you hungry, how about we eat a milk?”
Studies have shown that the first communication that the baby gets and the first language development are through the skin. Therefore, attention and touch are a kind of child’s need, and it is also a language way for children to feel others. It is a better way of communication. It is not only the performance of parents’ care and care for children, but also the psychological needs of children’s “skin hunger”, so that children can enjoy the silent love of their parents. Among the various methods of developing early infant intelligence, the best way to promote brain development is to caress.
4.Give him a sense of security and happiness
Embrace the child more, give him enough physical contact, and let him continue to feel the warmth of his parents and caregivers. Give him a safe environment and don’t let the child undergo stress or trauma, both physically and psychologically. Pay attention to your child’s emotional changes and understand some of the signals he sends. Such a small child will not be spoiled, and any of his needs should be responded to.
5.How to bring him to play？
Give your child some toys that are safe, such as colorful rattles, teether, and cloth toys, even if he doesn’t play. Let him see some picture books and family albums. If he is not interested, don’t be stubborn. Children of this age are very interested in faces, you can play games with your children. Hanging a soft mirror on the side of the crib, he also likes to see himself through the mirror.
Create a safe environment for your child to explore and roam, and enjoy a “floor time” with him every day. Encourage your child to play with blocks and soft toys to help develop his hand-eye coordination, fine movements and sense of accomplishment. Choose the right but not expensive toys, sometimes children prefer the common items at home. Paying more attention to children is more important than giving toys.
Play hide-and-seek or clap hands with your child to stimulate child’s memory. Bring children to other children and adults.
Language and cognitive ability
Sing or chat with children as they dress, bathe, feed, play, walk, and ride. Your child may not understand what you are saying, but by listening to you, his language skills will be cultivated. If the child does not seem to hear or can’t make a sound, take him to the doctor. Talk to your child face to face. If he makes a sound, you can encourage him by imitating his voice. Telling the story to the child every day, for him, the voice of the parents is “good voice of China.” It won’t take long for him to be happy to “see” the picture book. If you want to speak a foreign language, you can.
