Let's Face it, You're Amazing!
Wow, your baby is changing so fast! At age six months, your baby may be sitting and maybe even moving around exploring at all of the cool things in their environment. Exploring is great for baby but remember the most importing thing your baby needs to see is YOU!
Having lots of "face-to-face" time will help with bonding and forming a loving relationship with your baby. Being "face-to-face" allows you to look at each other and share eye contact, smiles, words, and lots of fun facial expressions. "Face-to-face" time lets your baby know that you are paying attention to them, you love them and you are enjoying their amazing face!
Brain Science for Your Baby
Face time is more than just fun! Face-to-face interaction - your baby smiles, you smile - that's what we call "serve and return" interaction. Babies want to "serve" - by cooing, babbling. You instinctively "return the serve" by responding in a meaningful way. This serve-and-return- builds brain connections between different parts of the brain. Building brains by having fun! Who knew?
