As you feed your baby, put a bright dishcloth, towel or scarf over your shoulder. Do they notice it? Do they look back and forth between your face and the colors' Talk to them about the different colors or patterns.
• While changing your child's diaper, encourage them to explore the different sounds they can make with their mouth. Show them how you can whistle, hum, blow and make kissing noises. Do they try to copy and of your sounds? Try going back and forth making sounds.
