Keep the apple
Babies grow so quickly and it is only years later we realise that the things that happened only yesterday were in fact a while ago and almost out of memory's range. Keep the apple in your eye a little longer with these simple activities for you and baby to share.
In the early baby stages, your baby will not be awake for long periods. Express your love and devotion to her with your voice and touch. Baby massage is a great activity to explore.
Once your baby is able to focus a little more, make frequent eye contact and sing some songs to her. Nursery rhymes are fun and interactive for later stages again when actions can take place.
Snuggle your baby, a lot! There is nothing wrong with a cuddle for comfort, for fun or even just because. Babies love feeling your skin on theirs. It enhances security. Enjoy cuddles at every opportunity. You can even add a lullaby in to soothe a baby off to sleep on your chest.
