Growth & Development

Cognitive Development

Normal Development: Your baby’s brain has been hard at work forming connections from the moment he was born. Each time he uses one of his senses (seeing, tasting, touching, hearing, smelling), a connection or path is made.

What You Can Do: Never hold back a snuggle—touch builds brain cells. Sing! Anything you enjoy—hearing your voice is soothing.  Talk throughout the day. Your baby is listening and knows your voice.

Our Advice: Remember that your baby is listening and watching what is going on around him. There is no such thing as giving your baby too much affection. Remember that all babies grow and develop at their own speed and try not to compare your baby (or yourself) to others.
