It’s important to stimulate your baby's senses with one-on-one interaction.

Your new baby gains so much information in the first year of life that her brain will actually double in weight. It is a critical time for providing your baby with learning experiences and stimulation because the brain cells that are not stimulated within the first few years actually die.  Your baby is learning about the world through her senses of touch, sight, sound, taste, and smell.  Through a process called sensory integration she has to first take all of this information and then learn to make sense of it all. Sensory integration lays the foundation for learning and development.  You can dramatically improve your baby's development by providing experiences to stimulate each of these senses.
