Infant Stimulation Activity 78: visual stimulators

Don't you get bored taking the same route to the grocery store or the same route to work every day. Wouldn't you get tired of watching the same movie over and over or reading the same issue of a magazine again and again with no change. Well, if your baby is looking at the same thing all the time then he will get bored too! And the stimulation factor of whatever he sees, hears, smells or touches is diminished too. So change it up. Pictures in the crib, toys on the carrier, or even his mobile.

Certainly a baby, particularly newborns, do not need a new picture or mobile every day - there is enough stimulation going on in life - but perhaps after a month something different in the crib or something new on his carrier will be exciting and stimulating!
