Playing is one of the most important activities parents can do with their babies. It not only helps with your baby’s brain development, but also can foster strong attachment in the relationship between parent and child. In the first 12 months of life, your baby undergoes enormous leaps in their development, and through play they can practice, enhance and explore these new skills.
Some areas where play can help your baby:
- Physical and muscular development
- Sensory development
- Social-emotional skills
- Feeling loved, secure and happy
