The 5 best ways to entertain the baby
Far laugh a baby may be the most hilarious experience ever, not only for mom and dad. Here’s how to do it
Entertaining a baby may not be as simple as it appears. Not always the baby is well disposed towards the activities that are proposed. You may have trouble tummy, sleep, hunger, and other and endless are the outstanding issues that still need to dissolve since being catapulted on this earth.
Yet this is not a mission impossible and if we dedicate ourselves with perseverance and a lot of confidence in their ability to parent, little will reciprocate with an immeasurable enthusiasm. What matters is knowing when to propose different activities, try to respect the times of the day and do not force the baby to the actions that it is not willing to take. The spunterebbe certainly.
If there can be any consolation, though, we like to confide that there are foolproof tricks to win the attention of the baby.
The cuckoo, an evergreen of great educational value
A gesture that is handed down from generation to generation and never goes out of style. The reason for the interplanetary success of the cuckoo is that it offers to the small an important message that reflects and reuses during the different stages that mark its growth.
Do not believe us? Until two or three years it happens that your young sapling simply pretends to play hide and seek covering his face with his hands. The reason is simple. All that is not perceived by the sight does not exist, there is not. And create the darkness around him, covering his face with his hands is to annul its presence in the world.
Fortunately, heart laughter of all present will be a positive encouragement to convince the baby to find a better hiding place. Soon it will do and will give a hard time to those who will have to look for the puppet hidden in a corner of the house.
For infants, the same principle, but still at a stage less evolved. Here covering the face is the adult with whom the little plays. Again, we are missing an important component of the universe child: the reference adult. The rapid emergence of the adult and smiling face sends little in awe because everything returns to the normal stage of things and little has not been abandoned.
Hiding objects and have them find the small
Similarly, play with objects and make them disappear from their field of vision is a great excuse to entice the baby to explore the world around him.
Everything that comes out of sight of the baby does not disappear completely, but this little does not know and needs time to understand this mystery.
A good idea is to hide an object under a tissue. For example, after playing with a doll that draws her attention you can simulate the disappearance. To embark on the hunt for her missing doll will be enough away to expose a small portion of the toy. A simple exercise that helps the little one to call to mind the shape, appearance, colors, and details of the items that become part of their world. The same can also be done with everyday objects.
This game can also be found in the Entertainers carpets, specially designed to stimulate the senses of the baby in different ways depending on the development stage.
Because the rocking soothes and entertains, newborn and beyond
A swing is a soothing and serene retreat at any age and the reason lies in the ability to recall the intrauterine period.
Indeed there is evidence that the small inside the maternal uterus is rocked by the movements of the mother. His walks or simply the fact of moving from one place to another resulting in a pleasant feeling to the fetus which maintains memory.
Another key reminder of what remains of our ancestral memory is that the rocking also simulates the movements that you make in packs. Moving from one place to another result in a search for security and stability elsewhere. And this movement speaks to the brain of the newborn giving the information needed to interpret that around him the situation is calm and safe.
They know certainly something new parents who spend the first few sleepless nights walking along the corridors until the small falls asleep.
Swinging, on mom’s arms, in a hammock or on a bouncer usually has the advantage to calm babies. This is also what you do to calm them down when they are upset because of a big scare. The tiny babies are very sensitive to changes in their environment, loud noises, the appearance of strangers, or sudden movements can make them cry with fright.
Read books together, it’s never too early
There is one thing you should never be overlooked and is read to children. To do so, loudly and from the first weeks, even those in the stomach, it helps children in so many ways. They include facial expressions, they discover that to articulate the sounds is important to move his lips in a certain way. Above all, as with the early teaching of music, learn the importance of listening.
Listening to the adult voice reading the stories is an experience full of meaning and full of stimuli. But it should be equally clear that little could not immediately show an interest in reading in itself, but rather to the actual book.
It is therefore important to choose the first books of fabric, light, and easy to grasp and chew. Then the board books with large and sturdy cardboard pages also bear the pressure of the first teeth.
This type of exploratory attitude is important to get a feeling for the book object. Then the little one will be ready to also discover the deeper functions.
Making animal sounds
Along the same line, you can entertain the little making animal sounds. Repeat the names of animals and match to each their own to serve the little that needs to refine the techniques of language.
The articulation of sounds is done at first by imitation and only when the baby feels ready to embark in the intricate world of communication.
One rule to always follow is to propose the games always paying great attention to the baby’s status. If it looks annoyed for some reason, or if it proves not to appreciate a game at any given time is good to try to investigate the causes. This could be temporary discomfort, or the demand for food, water or sleep.
So will certain games can revive at a later time. When will establish habits or gestures to introduce the game, the small will prove unequivocally clear that he is ready to have fun.
