Social Skills

Your baby is bonding with his/her caregiver and learning to smile and cry to make his needs known.
HELP you baby develop by:

  • Hold your baby often, try to understand his moods and respond to smiling and crying.
  • When changing, washing and feeding baby look into his eyes; smile, talk and sing to him using his name.
  • Hold objects with vivid colors and hang a mobile on the crib rail moving it to different places each day. Watch how he follows with his eyes.
  • Attach child proof mirror where baby can see his reflection when he plays.
  • Hold baby on your shoulder often, supporting his neck so that he can observe the world around him.
  • Encourage social interaction and create experiences with other members of the family and community.
