Here Are 18 Activities Among Our Favorite, To Best Accompany Your Baby From 3 To 6 Months In Its Learning And Discovery :

1. Make Him Listen To Music!

Vary the rhymes, lullabies, classical music, etc: the music calms, the sleep and the awakening.

2.Talk To Her And Take The Time To Listen:

baby needs your help to practice and learns the language. Talk to him, a nod to his babbling, smile at him when he lets out small screams… baby needs to feel reassured, listened to, accompanied, in his different apprenticeships. Avoid “baby talk” too much (except for your games and cuddling sessions; -), because if a 3-month-old baby does not understand everything, he hears and gradually gets used to sounds, intonations and phrases. It memorizes information that will be essential for language learning.

3.Sing The Same Song Several Times In a Row, Less And Less Loudly, Until You Almost Whisper:

Vary the tones and voices. Baby discovers the sound volume and will not fail to express his astonishment, his joy in front of the changes.

4.Sit Your Baby Down:

Baby muscles develop and gradually strengthen, first the neck, then the back and legs. Before he can sit on his own, help him by taking him on your lap or by pushing him on big cushions. This will help him to acquire a sense of balance and strengthen his muscles, without him being able to hurt himself by falling. (don’t skimp on the number of cushions, because even if you stay next to him, a baby is a bit like a toast, it never falls on the right side!). You can also help it stabilize by positioning its diamond-shaped legs and spreading its knees well apart.

5.” Touch Everything”:

babies learn thanks to all their senses, it is the motor-sensory development, but especially thanks to their hands and their mouth. From 3 months, he manages to grasp a few seconds what comes into contact with his fingers. Around 4 months, the gesture becomes voluntary: your baby grasps what is available to him. Offer him objects of different shapes, textures, colors, so that he can explore, manipulate, catch as he pleases.

6. Let Her Discover The Outside World:

the treasures of the market, a walk in the park, a picnic by a lake… the colors, the noises, the smells… baby will love to share this learning with you, especially worn in a scarf, huddled safely against you.
