Babies are fascinated by people's face, in partcular they will stare at a face, focusing between the eyes and forehead.  We don't really know why this is, but believe it or not, this is one of your babies' first milestones!  You should notice them staring at people from just 2 - 4 weeks old.  Cut a picture of a face out of a catalogue or magazine and place it in front of your baby but out of reach - it'll keep them happy for ages!
