Infant Stimulation Activity 107: everyone loves a parade
At even one month old, babies are looking for changing visual stimulation. Once your baby looks at an object for a few minutes he may look away as he is no longer interested because he has become familiar with the object and is looking for something new. One suggestion is to offer baby a mobile with changing objects or patterns - and these can be great for when baby needs a little independent time and perhaps you need some down time.
However, if you are up for some fun interaction then get out some objects and let the parade begin! Show your baby a series of animals allowing him a enough time to look over each one. The animals can be stuffed or even pictures or flash cards. Say the name of each animal, allow your baby some time to explore and become familiar, then show him something new.
