Peek a boo, I see you

It’s funny how you could buy a toy that you think is great, give it to your baby and they only play with it for five minutes then start to cry.

It’s too much for them. I could give my babies as many toys as I want but after a while they would still just want me.

Since the beginning of the third month, a baby can normally start to smile at the appearance of human faces. You can use this developmental achievement to start playing the Peek-a-boo game with your baby.

Lean over your baby, cover your face with your hands or a baby wrap and ask “where am I”, remove your hands and say “Here I am”.

When I play this with my babies they all react with joy and smiles. Better still, this game is the start of your babies cognitive development which is much needed in the toddler years when they start learning how to speak.
