Newborn eyes find complex patterns in black and white especially intriguing, so try holding up black and white toys or images for your baby to gaze at. Your own face will be his favorite thing to look at, so lean in closely and sing or talk softly to give your baby the chance to focus on you. Additionally, since it takes several months for your baby’s eyesight to fully develop, your own home will start to evolve before his very eyes, providing countless sources of amusement for his growing brain.

How can I interact and play with my newborn?
Start by stimulating his mind in the first months of his life to help with brain development.
Remember, your baby just entered this world of ours and finds ordinary things fascinating. It’s enthralling for a baby as he learns to recognize the objects around him. Besides playing peek-a-boo, dancing around and making silly faces or funny noises at your baby, try just walking around with him and letting him take everything in. Think of it as introducing your baby to the world. Even if you are just at the local grocery store or in your own living room, your baby will be sure to find something that catches his eye.
