Babies (0 - 15 months)
Before your baby can move around on her own to explore, you’ll need to help her to experience the world by bringing it to her. By introducing objects and experiences that engage the five senses—hearing, touching, seeing, smelling, and tasting—you’ll help your baby discover and learn.
Your baby will be especially interested in things that she can hold in her hands and put in her mouth. Make sure that anything within your baby’s reach is safe for her to put in her mouth. She might also be content to learn just by watching and listening. Give her a chance to explore in her own way and in her own time.
Everything you show and share with your baby gives her information about her surroundings. This knowledge helps build her confidence to explore and learn more. Share your own enthusiasm with your baby as you explore the world together.
