Infant Stimulation Activity: touch a finger

Reaching for any object helps baby’s brain develop hand-eye coordination. And there is one object that newborns especially enjoy grasping, your finger.

Allow your baby to hold your finger and to feel it. Encourage by saying “good girl” or “you’re so strong.”

For a change gently stroke the inside of her hand then slightly moving your finger away. She will quickly learn to coordinate the feel, reach, and grasp.
