Babies love looking at other people’s faces. Try to spend time speaking and playing with them like this. The whole family can try it.
Place your baby in front of you – not too far away so they can see you easily. Let them look at your face. Now start to have some fun. You can pull faces or make silly noises. You might see your little one try to copy you. If they like something, do it again.
See if you can make them smile or laugh.
