Your precious newborn will light up your life. And sensory stimulation actually “lights up” key areas of your one-month-old baby’s brain.
Your baby can see objects 8-10 inches away but can't make out details or the full color spectrum
He follows objects slowly with his eyes over very short distances
She mimics simple facial expressions and, when someone speaks to her, looks intently
He's startled by loud or unexpected noises
Her fists are closed
From day one, your precious newborn takes in the sights of the world. This is some of the earliest learning she does. What she sees provides important clues about the bright world in which she suddenly finds herself.
In 1992, recommendations were made to put babies to sleep on their backs to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Since then, infant deaths have been reduced by one-half.
