  • Just by your own physical and mental health.
    And this translates into your many years of Motherhood ahead, too!
    :-D

    Genius babies do not come from their parents doing something, in fact it might be the opposite.
    Take time to literally notice every detail together.
    Go *slower.*
    Don't push or have Grande expectations.

    This baby is going to be who ever they are, nurture this person from their heart, out.

  • Classical music and all of that won't necessarily make your baby smarter, but reading to the belly is a great way to bond and start a habit that will definitely help once Baby is out of the womb. The only thing I can think of that might help is taking fish oil supplements. The EPA/DHA/ALA (omega-3 fatty acids) are great for brain development, and good for general health and for disease prevention.
    I agree with doulala. The best thing you can do is nurture your child for who he/ she is. Help him/her foster what they love and what they're good at, and help them overcome challenges in life.
