Did you know...?

Babies learn through play. Place yourself at the babies' level and look around seeing what they may be seeing.

Smiles, waves, cries, facial expressions, body movements and eye contact are some of the ways in which babies try to communicate with you.

Use everyday routines; e.g. changing and mealtimes to talk to, sing and laugh with your baby.

Kissing and loving touches releases opioids and oxytocin in the brain which helps babies feel happy and helps their brains grow healthily.
