What is Infant Stimulation?

Infant stimulation includes activities that arouse or stimulate your baby’s sense of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. This interaction is important between baby and parent as they discover who one another is. Infant stimulation can improve your baby’s curiosity, attention span, memory, and nervous system development. Research has shown that babies who are stimulated reach developmental milestones faster, have better muscle coordination, and a more secure self image.

Vision is the least developed sense a newborn baby has. Therefore,
newborn babies who receive visual stimulation develop their vision faster than newborns who don't. A newborn who develops vision faster has the ability sooner to notice surroundings which enhances curiosity, attentiveness, and the ability to interact. Newborn babies focus best on geometric patterns with 100% contrast (that is black on white). Therefore, wearing a Babysmartees t-shirt should be part of your infant stimulation program.
