Baby stimulation: Activities for your 4-month old

Who would have thought that in these few months she could grow into this little person? She's becoming more and more social every day, and playtime just gets better. Here's how to get the most out of play-time with your four-month-old.

Offer a toy. Hand her a toy that rattles or makes crinkly sounds and watch her reaction when she grabs it. Toys that help her learn about the different senses are both educational and magical to a baby. Passing a toy back and forth makes for a fun game. Remember when she smiled for the first time a month or two ago? Now she's starting to giggle – which is so much better!

Go for a game. Bubbles are fascinating to babies. Blow them around your baby and she'll be endlessly entertained. Play “This Little Piggy” while you're getting her dressed. She'll love to be tickled and stimulated, and it's also a good distraction when you're trying to get her socks on!

Set up a playdate. Why not invite one or two mom friends over who have babies around the same age? Put your babies on the floor along with a few toys and watch what happens. You'll love watching your baby hang out with her new friends, and you could make a few friends yourself.

Playing with your baby and creating a fun and active environment is vital to early childhood development. Keep her active and you'll raise a happy, healthy, well-adjusted baby.

I have a one month old and already do this. She loves her crinkle book. She became so fussy one night and my husband tried something different with her, And it was her crinkle book. She always gets quiet whenever we use it.

Very interesting
