After a clean diaper is on, hold a small safe toy over your child’s head as they lie on their back. Make a soft noise and jiggle the toy. Do they bat at it with their hands? Try to kick it? Answer their actions with another sound and gentle jiggle.

As you play this game with your child, they’re learning to pay attention and pursue a goal: hitting the toy with their hands or feet. It’s amazing to think a baby so young is already developing these skills they will use the rest of their life.
