We all know how soon a baby starts to grasp the wonderful world around him. His eyes will follow mum around the room. Pretty lights will capture his attention and he will sit or lay for hours watching the mobile above his cot turn around and play nursery rhymes. So how old does your baby have to be before you stimulate your babies mind?
Each and every mother will begin to notice when her baby is getting bored. It may be when he or she is a few weeks old, or perhaps after a few months. And that is the time when you only want to buy the best selling baby products to encourage and stimulate his interest in the world around him. A few years ago, there was an experiment called 'Hot Housing' your child. This entailed teaching the baby from only a few months old, to 'read' word cards, or listen to stories being read to him and at the same time seeing the words in front of him. Now we all don't want to push our children too early, on the other hand we also don't want to wait to long before helping in their development. So what do we do?
There are some great products on the market these days. So much more than when I was a baby, and even when my son was small. I taught my son to read when he was four years old, but these days you can teach your baby when he is only a few months to a year old. Not only learning the basics of reading, but so many other things that will stimulate his mind.
I have tried to find the best collection that will give you an idea of how to gently give your child his first learning experience.
