Developmental Stimulation of Normal Children

The more quality time (focusing on your child) you spend with your child the better it is for him.
1.    Hold your baby as much as possible. Touching, cuddling, eye contact, smiles and affection is good for your baby. Feedings are an opportunity for these warm personal interactions. Your baby will not get used to holding until he is at least 4 months and even then you can consistent about times to hold and times not: he will acquire you rules.
2.    Talk to your baby. This should start even before birth. All babies enjoy being talked and sung to. Babies must first hear language before they can use it. There is no best script - just put into words whatever you are thinking and feeling.
3.    Play with your baby. Try to loosen up and rediscover your free spirit. Respond to your baby's attempts to initiate play. Provide your baby with various objects of interest. Toys need not be expensive but have to be safe, for example, homemade mobiles, rattles, spools, pots and pans, and boxes. Insure toys are large enough not to be swallowed by your baby. Encourage your baby's efforts at discovering how to use his hands and mind.
4.    Show your baby the world. Enrich his experience and your interaction with him. Point out everything people, cars, colors, clouds and stars. Help your toddler describe what he sees or experiences. Everything we see or do has a name.
5.    Read to your baby. Stories enable you to enrich your interaction with your baby. Even 3-month-olds enjoy looking at pictures. Look at the family photo album. By 6 months of age, begin reading stories to your child.
6.    Provide your child with social experiences with other children by age 2 years. Day care is appropriate, a good nursery would have an adult to children ratio 1:4-5. Consider going to the club or to your relatives. By the age of 2 years, young children are ready to learn from each other, especially how to get along with other people.
7.    The age to start formal teaching is not established, many would delay it until age 4 or 5. The effort to create "super kids" through special lessons, drills, computer programs, and classes has not proven successful. Creative play and spontaneous learning facilitated by an intersted adult towards the child's particular interests is much more beneficial during the early years.
