Blow, Baby, Blow!

Baby Toddler Anytime Anywhere

Gently blow on your child’s face and hair. Ask them, “Do you feel the wind” Notice if they seem to like the sensation. If so, blow with long and short breaths. Make your pauses in between long and short, too. How long can you and your baby play?

See what your child is learning

When you change how fast and slow you blow, your child feels different sensations, which is how they learn. You’re also helping your baby learn to control their attention, an ability that develops focus and self-control.
