Start early - arousing or stimulating activities for your baby's sense of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell.
Baby stimulation improves attention span, memory, curiosity, and brain development. In addition, stimulating baby's senses hastens developmental milestones and motor skills.
Babies benefit from stimulation as early as 3rd month of pregnancy. Once babies develop hearing in 5th month, music is excellent for aural stimulation and calming the baby.
Prenatal stimulation uses various stimuli such as classical music, mum’s voice or white noise. The baby learns to recognize and respond to different stimuli, which encourage physical, mental, and sensory development.
