Infant stimulation doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to be worth it. You can introduce your baby to texture with just some pieces of paper or a brown paper bag. First, hold the paper in front of baby and with stoke the paper with her hand. Say, “The paper is smooth. Feel the paper? It is smooth.”
Then take the paper and crunch it up slowly and deliberately so baby can hear the sound. Say, “Do you hear that sound? The paper is crinkling. Hear it?” Finally, take baby’s hand, stroke the crinkled paper and say, “The paper is rough and bumpy. Feel the paper? It is rough and bumpy.” You can repeat it several times as long as your baby continues to be interested. Once she turns her head away or becomes fussy end the session with a big hug and kiss!
