Directions: Place a stuffed toy cat in your baby's hands and let her explore freely. Because your baby will put the cat in his mouth, provide close supervision and be sure the cat is not too small. Point out eyes, nose, ears on the cat as you explore with your baby, repeating the word cat each time.
Parent-child eye contact during play time can help your child focus. At first, by limiting your babyâs exploration to one simple, colorful choice you help your baby focus. As he matures you can add another stuffed animal.
