How do you play with an infant about two months old?

I read to him, massage him, and sing to him. What else can we do together?

  • Take him for a stroll outside everyday you can. The sunlight and fresh air is good for him. (In high heat days, it's best to do this late in the day or early in the day.)

    Inside, take him for strolls about your home. Talk to him about the refrigerator as you open it...say, "cold" and take him in a dark room and say, "dark"....have him touch something soft, and say "soft". You get the idea. He will love being on tour with you. Don't assume because he's only two months that he isn't listening to you. This was my son's favorite thing to do for months!

  • In addition to Timlessglass, there is a series of books called "Peek-a-boo!" that help sensory development by having little patches of material to feel on each page (example, the picture of the puppy has a patch of fur on it)

  • You can help him learn to speak by repeating phonics to him: ma ma ma, ba ba ba, la la la, etc.

    Make sure that he is getting "tummy time". My daughter used to hate this, but it is important for buidling muscles to have babies on the floor on their tummies.

    Be sure to speak to him whenever you are with him and he is awake. Tell him what you are doing and why you are doing it. When you are outside, talk to him about everyting that you see.

  • peek-a-boo, stick your tongue out n say ahhhhhh, change the note your voice is on like ahhhAHHHahhh, my daugher laughs when i do that. name body parts on baby, and take walks,

    and if you want to be able to teach baby early communication get a baby sign language book. it tells about games to play with baby and diff signs for milk, and more, and cat, and dog, and diaper, and many others that will help baby learn to talk and help you understand baby and baby understand you.
