Best Ways To Help Your Baby Reach Important Milestones

You do your best to nurture your baby long before birth. Once your baby is born, there’s a lot you can do to give your infant a strong start as she or he learns about their world.

Touch your baby gently and often — it’s a fact that babies that grow up in orphanage nurseries develop failure to thrive — a totally preventable condition if they only receive enough human contact.

Hand in hand with touch is enveloping infants with a sense of security. Be responsive to your baby’s needs. Setting a set schedule goes a long way toward fostering a trust about what to expect every day.

Talk to your baby often; provide stimulation by exposing them to different sensations, textures, sounds, interactive games, and toys.
