Increasing His Development
Use a practical infant chair so that he can look closely at what you are doing during an activity.
Arrange toys on a blanket or play mat on the floor and let him lie on his tummy and play with the toys
for short periods of time.
Connect objects above his cot which makes a noise when he touches it.
Make it a habit to sing him nursery rhymes.
Encourage contact with other children and adults.
Keeping Him Safe
At all times protect him from exposure to sunlight
Use a special sun-protection cream, a sun hat to protect his neck and face, and a pram canopy when he's out
with you during the summer.
Never leave small objects within his reach as he explores everything in his mouth.
Always check for an appropriate safety symbol when buying toys for him.
Activity For Him
Design and make a simple game that will encourage his sensory development... for example... an activity mat, sound lotto,
a 'feely' bag or a game of matching smells.
