|« Introducing Swimming||Making ToucanLearn Part of your Routine »|
A newborn baby needs both stimulation, but also quiet time to ponder and analyse the world around them. At first babies are unable to see more than a few inches in front of them, so come up close and sing lullabies and show bright board books, high contrast patterns or flash cards from just a foot away. Your newborn will also enjoy the movement and rhythm of being carried places. You don't need to worry too much about toys at this stage as for a baby, everything is a 'toy' that can be explored and played with! Join ToucanLearn as soon as you have your baby and you'll find loads of activities aimed specifically at the first few weeks of your babies life!
