Those who don't talk about the age of the month and talk about playing with them, and those who talk about the theory and not the practical operation, are all keyboard parenting.
It can be practiced according to the age of the month.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Communication and Outreach published a guide titled "Parent Power," addressing the needs of children under the age of 1.
• Parents or caregivers can respond to the baby's crying in a timely manner with love;
• feel safe and comfortable;
• can hear and make sounds;
• can move around;
• be able to play in a safe environment;
• Can play with toys safely.
In conclusion, the key to playing with children under 1 year is to respond in a timely manner, to encourage children to play on their own, and to create a safe environment.
"Three days for cats and three days for dogs" is exactly what babies under the age of 1 are talking about. They change every day, from huddled, sleepy, wrinkled newborns to smooth, fair-skinned babies and gradually develop new skills. These skills are grouped into four main areas: gross motor skills, fine motor skills, language and social skills, and cognitive thinking skills. Therefore, the way and type of play with them can be carried out according to the different skills developed by different months and ages.
• 1st month
Features: Babies do most of the things they do are sleep and cry, in addition to their little hands clenched tightly, and occasionally make babbling sounds.
Likes: hugging close to the skin (skin to skin), being held in a curled position, being able to breastfeed in time when hungry, making eye contact, hearing the familiar voices of parents, hearing a heartbeat similar to that of a mother in the womb .
Play with your baby:
In the first month after giving birth, mothers are usually confinement and need a good rest. At this time, the father can participate in the parenting, such as taking off the shirt and hugging the baby, singing some rhythmic songs, and reading the rhythm of the children's songs will make the baby feel very happy (even if it is just a limerick you make up casually, it will become a A very useful tool to soothe your baby in the future).
Pay attention to speaking in a slow, rhythmic, exaggerated (rising, long tail) tone, and lively facial expressions (open eyes and grin with teeth). (When Daddy Baby does the above behavior, Baby will quickly calm down, and Baby will clearly show his attachment to Daddy Baby in his future growth.)
Mothers can gently stroke the backs of their babies' hands to help them release their little fists - the foundation for developing fine hand movements in the next few months.
You can show the baby pictures with strong black and white contrast, and the pattern of thick stripes, placed about 15-25 cm away from the baby's eyes, to promote the development of the baby's eyesight.
When a mother is breastfeeding, watching her baby earnestly, smiling and meeting her baby's eyes, can cultivate your initial intimacy: the baby's vision is just enough to allow him to see his mother's face clearly while breastfeeding, how amazing! At this time, no matter what sound he makes, responding to him in time by imitating the sound he makes can encourage the baby to make more sounds. Once Baby made a "uh" sound, the cute dad beside him even responded to Baby with "uh" in his sleep.
Whenever you are interacting with your baby, such as bathing, diaper changing, umbilical cord care, etc., describe to your baby what you are doing and what you are thinking at the moment. Don't think that the baby doesn't understand, so just keep silent. From birth, the sounds the baby hears will become the material for his future speech.
This month, let the baby lie on his stomach more (about 3-5 minutes), gradually increase from one minute to about ten minutes, and exercise the strength of the back of the neck. Baby can turn from supine to side lying in confinement after being specially trained by her cute father (maybe just because of her genetics).
• 2nd month
Features: Eyesight develops rapidly and can see objects several meters away. Small hands can open slightly, and occasionally wave their arms, and can briefly hold objects.
Likes: Sticking to parents' bodies, looking at brightly colored toys and black and white patterns, listening to music (usually classical music), hearing chatting sounds and gestures, touching or massaging, lying on dad's chest .
Play with your baby:
It's time to show your baby the hanging toy, and maybe try to reach out. When the wind blows the rattle to make a sound, or the family is chatting, the baby will turn his head to the source of the sound: at this time, do not forget to smile and greet the baby with exaggerated mouth shapes, facial expressions and gestures.
During this period, we especially like to walk around in front of Baby's eyes, or move our fingers left and right to watch him gradually change from chasing eyes to chasing eyes that move with his head.
Most babies this month will give you a smile for the first time, a smile that will be more pronounced because of your positive response (such as looking at you and making a sound, saying a rising word or phrase, kissing or hugging him). more and more. We often say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, remember to look into the eyes when talking to your baby, call the baby's name first, and then use a lively tone to say simple sentences with long endings (such as small - cute - really --good--!).
At this stage, instead of simply telling your baby what you are doing, remember to allow time for your baby to respond to your questions or descriptions with a simple ", ah, oh" and give him timely encourage. Read to your baby. Any content is fine. Baby Dad once read the car manual to Baby for a month, and he was also drunk...
Playing music for your baby is also a good choice. Pay attention to your baby's signals. If he waves or swings to the music, or smiles, it means he likes this kind of music.
Once, I was too tired to sit up with my baby, so I lay down with Baby looking at each other, and invented the game of "catching Baby": stretch out my palm and put it in front of the baby, and the baby will curiously try to touch it. , as soon as he touches the palm of his hand, grab his hand quickly and gently shake his little hand while happily reciting "Catch Baby, catch Baby, get it, I'm so happy!" This game can encourage The baby makes more grasping movements.
Another game is "The Monster is Coming": Use your fingers to walk on the baby's body as if walking, and tell the baby, "The monster has reached the little arm, and now it is the little shoulder!" This game can promote the baby's tactile development, too Tell your baby the names of the various organs in the body.
There is also a very simple game "Baby and Mom": let the baby lie down, the adult's face is in front of him, and when he touches his small face with his hands, shout "Baby, Baby" rhythmically, He then touched his mother's face with his hands and rhythmically called "Mama, Mama". This is to help him understand who is Baby and who is mother. One day in the third month, Baby suddenly called "ma ma" twice, which was really a surprise!
Continue to put your baby on his stomach this month, gradually extending from 10 minutes to 15 minutes: the baby can lift his head higher.
• 3rd month
Features: Learn to play with your hands. Small hands can be fully opened and can be swung around as if they can't hit the target, can hold for longer, begin to grab hair, glasses and clothing, and begin to eat hands. Can pronounce vowels such as "a, o, e", scream loudly, learn cause and effect, and use crying and laughing to confirm whether parents are doing the right thing.
Likes: Lying on your shoulders and looking back, playing with your hands in various ways (swing, sucking, grabbing, hitting, holding), likes to sit up half upright, hitting hanging toys with your hands, holding Live in the ring and play, slapping the bed on your stomach.
Play with your baby:
Gently grab the baby's little hand and put it on your face to observe his happy expression. At this stage, the baby is very good at grasping things, and mothers must tie up their hair and put away their glasses. At that time, I gave Baby a blue plastic ring that could be gnawed, and Baby couldn't put it down, and played with all kinds of chews, so that when it was the 5th month, Baby saw the blue object, and the first As soon as he reacted, he immediately started eating.
You can lie side by side with your baby and tease him from one side to make him turn his head; or let your baby play with the toy half-upright against your body. The game invented by Baby Dad this month is called "high five": stretch out a palm in front of Baby, and when Baby also stretches out a hand, he is afraid of hitting him quickly, and happily shouts "give me five"! This game prompts the little one to reach out and reach for Dad's palm.
By the 3rd month, in addition to the red alert screams and cries that need to be responded to in time, you can start to appease him with words like "baby, mother will come", and then rush over to check and deal with the problem.
In the 3rd month, the baby can make more sounds, and can repeat it with the simplest vocabulary. For example, Baby Dad used to sing the tune of "Song of Onion". The lyrics are "Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad..." , As a result, Baby will be called "ba" in the 3rd month, and "ba ba" in the 5th month.
You can let the baby lie on the bed, and the parents squat down to meet his eyes, prompting the baby to look up at you. The game I invented after giving birth this month gradually recovered is "Rolling Baby": let Baby lie on his chest, wrap his hands around his body, and slowly roll from side to side. This game helps to exercise the baby's sense of balance. When he is lying on his chest, he will also take the initiative to raise his head and meet his mother's eyes.
The baby may show signs of intestinal cramps. At this time, let the baby's belly lie on one of the father's arms, the legs are naturally drooping, and the hand supports the baby's chin. This position will make the baby feel very comfortable, we call it "" One-handed cuteness."
When the mother is tired, you can put the baby on the chest, and then suddenly look up and meet the baby's eyes, accompanied by a cheerful voice - this simplified version of "hide and seek" will make the baby laugh.
In the 3rd month, the baby will start to swing with the music, especially the music with a strong sense of rhythm (be careful not to be too loud when playing rock songs). With the positive response of parents, the baby has begun to make long sounds, such as "Mmmmmmmmmmm~".
Remember to allow time for your baby to respond to you and encourage him to say more!
In addition to putting your baby on his stomach this month, you can also support his little feet with both hands to encourage your baby to kick his legs and jump forward.
• 4th month
Features: Eyes can accurately follow moving objects, and the head is raised higher. Can make vowel changes, such as "a-o", start to itch, can spread arms hoping to be hugged, like to spit and blow bubbles, and begins to respond to their own name.
Likes: Invite parents to play with themselves, play with fingers, like to grab rings and rattles, like to be held upright for a better view.
Play with your baby:
As your baby's eyesight gets better, start playing more games with him! The game invented by Baby Dad this month is called "Grab Dad": put a finger in front of Xiao Baby to encourage him to grab his finger, and once he grabs it, he will be rewarded with kisses and hugs. This game can exercise your baby's grasping ability and improve his perception of space and distance.
I like to play with my baby with all kinds of toys: give him 4 cm square blocks, one in each hand, and watch him play with the blocks (of course, he will inevitably put them in his mouth); give him a bell, and use the rattle in his hand to touch the rattle in his hand.
The "Car" game I invented: Grab Baby's hands, first shake it in place, then follow the nursery rhyme to straighten up, down, left and right, and sing: "Car, Di Di Di! Drive left - Drive right -Open up-Open down”.
Observe which direction the little guy likes to stretch his hands and repeat it a few times. Of course, you can also play with music, play a piece of music, and let the little guy start dancing and twisting according to the lyrics. This game is very easy for adults to cheer up. I especially remind everyone to pay attention to the eyes of the baby, smile at him all the time, and try to lengthen the tail when reciting nursery rhymes. Stop as soon as you notice your baby is tired or uninterested.
The baby begins to make various sounds, and parents can also give the baby more sound sources, such as the game "animal sounds": duckling, quack; little chicken, chirping; little lamb; puppy Dogs, woofs; kittens, cats, meows... Parents can create their own sounds of various animals and nature, and read them in a childlike way. These meaningful sounds will make the little ones giggle with laughter.
This month, you can put your hands on the baby's armpits to bear the weight, and let the baby feel the pleasure of standing up for a few seconds; you can also help the baby to sit up for a few seconds: when it is about to fall, the baby will stretch out his hand to support the ground, It was also one of the trainings that helped him gradually develop a sense of balance and self-protection.
You can let the baby sit on the corner of the sofa, pay attention to remove unsafe hard objects around, and then put various pillows and pillows as much as possible, so that the baby can safely practice the sitting-down process. In the process of pulling the baby to sit up with both hands, you can also count "1, 2, 3" to prepare the baby, and the process of pulling the sitting can be slowed down, which not only exercises the baby's muscle strength, but also allows the both of you They all laughed happily.
• 5th month
Features: Can accurately touch objects with hands, can turn over, can prop up the chest and stomach off the ground when lying on the stomach, can grasp objects with one hand, and can pour objects from one hand to the other. He can make sounds that he doesn't know the exact meaning of, such as "papa", and try to imitate the voices and movements of adults. Can recognize the shape of objects.
Likes: Watching lips change, playing with hands and feet, squeezing toys to make sounds.
Play with your baby:
This month, the baby will flutter up and down when he is on his stomach. You can put a toy or chew gum in front of him to attract him to move forward and promote him to learn to crawl in the future.
The baby has begun to learn to play by himself: when Baby is lying on her back, she likes to bend her body and grab her little feet with her hands to chew. (Some pantyhose design the sock part as a brightly colored animal, which will encourage the baby to reach for his own feet.) Try putting a toy on the side of the baby to entice the baby to turn over. Many books recommend starting to play with building blocks. I would like to remind everyone that the length of the side of the building blocks should be more than 4 cm, and the building blocks should be made of wood, smooth edges, and non-toxic materials.
In addition, we also like to play the following games with Baby.
"Rolling cute": Let the baby lie prone on your stomach, perpendicular to your torso, and then slowly roll his body back and forth, which can also help the baby to promote brainstem development and cultivate balance.
"Hide and Seek": Cover your face with your hands, then suddenly remove your palms, let your face appear in front of your baby's eyes, and shout "Oops, it's Mom/Dad"! Of course, if you have the physical strength, you can hide behind the sofa or curtain and suddenly jump out and speak in an exaggerated tone, which usually makes the baby laugh (it is not recommended to play with small-month-old children, it may be scared to cry).
The "tug-of-war" invented by cute dad: hand one end of the gauze towel to the baby to grab, grab the other end by yourself, pull it gently, and occasionally let the baby pull over it, usually making the baby very happy. "Look in the mirror" before and after bathing: Babies usually enjoy watching themselves move in the mirror.
My favorite "tickling": baby is starting to tickle, gently kneading the skin around your baby's neck, underarms, waist, thighs, and palms and soles usually makes you both laugh. The game of helping the baby to jump forward can be continued, and the "technical action" of turning over can also be taught.
In addition to holding the baby to identify the names of various objects, you can also hold the baby's little hand, encourage him to touch objects of different materials, and tell him what is smooth, rough, comfortable, thin, thick and so on.
You can hold your baby to understand cause and effect: for example, encourage him to tap a safe overhead light switch with his small hand to understand the relationship between the switch and the light and dark of the light.
This month we have put on Baby's seat belt and sat in our dining chairs to eat with us. When we eat, he grabs the toy on his plate that can sound the keys, or grabs chews and blocks and gnaws (he likes to nibble during teething), when he shows interest in our food We give him plastic spoons to knock on the table or chew on.
You can tell stories to your baby this month, but it should be noted that you need to tell stories face-to-face with him (you can make up stories casually, such as the story of "there was a mountain, and there was a temple on the mountain"), when he starts to concentrate While staring at your mouth changes, try more dramatic mouth changes and give him time to respond. Baby's dad likes to sing the opening song "Ahhh, ahhh" of "The Legend of the New White Snake" before Baby goes to bed. Sometimes Baby can also utter the same tune "Ahhh, ahhh", which is really amazing. People can't help laughing! It was really fun.
Continue to let your baby practice sitting and lying down this month, and soon he will be able to maintain his balance and sit firmly!
• 6th month
Features: Can sit! Accurately reaches targets, is good at building blocks, picks up objects with one hand, throws toys hard, and rolls cylinders. Shows interest in color, makes longer, more vocal sounds, and better simulates facial expressions.
Likes: Playing with blocks, throwing things, sitting and playing.
Play with your baby:
This month, most babies can learn to sit by themselves, which is a great liberation for parents. I'm used to putting a circle of pillows around my baby to prevent him from tipping over due to his unsteady center of gravity when he first learns to sit.
We started to play more toys with the baby, such as three blocks: let Baby have one block in each hand, and then give him a third one to see how he gets it. Baby began to like to throw the toys in his hands everywhere: under his stomach, behind his back, in front of him, and on his side, so we let him sit in the middle of the bed and play with all kinds of toys, and then go and clean up after a while.
From this moment on, you must learn to create a safe play environment for your child, and let your child have time to play independently: what you have to do is to play with the child, not guide the child to play! If you try to get your child to play your way, it can quickly become boring and irritable.
For example, when Baby was playing with rings, I thought he was interested in colorful plastic rings, but he likes to throw away all the rings and play with the pillars in the middle; another example is Baby's dad who wants Baby to play button games, but Baby just likes to gnaw on the keys... Later, we learned to observe Baby's way of playing, what he likes and what he tries to do. We mainly focus on his safety (such as putting on the mat in advance and taking away the things that may cause danger) ), help him when he's been out of reach and starts to get impatient, and tell him what he's doing.
In this way, Baby can play a game by himself for half an hour; we also learned to slow down with our children and experience different ways of playing from the perspective of new life.
Of course, in addition to continuing the various games in the previous months, parents also recommend playing crawling games: hold up the baby's belly and little buttocks, and let him jump forward freely. This month, you can also teach your baby to put toys upside down and exercise his fine motor skills.
I also like to let Baby watch clapping, then grab his hand and teach him to play the game of clapping, which is very helpful. When the baby looks at an object and immediately tells him the name of the object, this baby-induced learning opportunity allows him to better match the object and the name.
• Months 7-9
Features: Can crawl, improve hand grasping ability, can hold things up slowly, can eat small pieces of food with thumb and forefinger by oneself, drink water from a cup, can make a combination of initials and finals (ha, da) ,ba,ma,di,mu), respond to their own names, can invite adults to play together, can associate images and pictures through words, begin to recognize students, and feel nervous when facing strangers.
Likes: jumping to the music, games of hide and seek and clapping, children's songs with strong rhythm and rhythm; chasing soap bubbles; playing ball.
Play with your baby:
"Only parental love in the world is for separation". Born from the mother's womb, he suddenly became an independent individual; from his parents' arms, he slowly fluttered to the outside world... The growth of a baby is a process of getting farther and farther away from his parents, and it is also a process of them getting more and more independent process.
From the 7th month, the baby begins to leave the arms of the parents voluntarily. At this stage, the baby's athletic ability is further enhanced, and it is especially necessary for parents to create a safe environment for him to explore.
Crawling: Choose a soft toy or a soothing towel (avoid touching the baby's head when falling down! Adorable dad once sat the baby on his chest, but the baby hit his forehead heavily when he fell down, Two people have a big bag on their forehead...), put it in front of the baby, attracting him to lean forward and grab it. In order to reach for things, the baby will gradually lean forward from the sitting position, become tummy, and finally become ready to crawl. The baby's first crawling is so much fun that parents can pick up their phone and record a video. At first, Baby of my family just lunged forward. His round belly was propped on the mattress, and his hands were hard, but he couldn't crawl with his feet - so although he kept trying to lunge forward, he moved back step by step. When the baby's belly and buttocks can be lifted off the ground and arched into a "bridge", he will slowly develop into a crawling action of alternating hands and feet. It should be noted that at the beginning, the baby cannot recover from the crawling position to the sitting position, so when he is tired, he will stop and cry. At this time, you can help the baby to sit in the sitting position! It doesn't matter even if the baby can't learn to crawl. Many mothers say that their baby is not very good at crawling by the age of 1, but has already begun to walk.
Obstacle Crawl: This is an upgraded version of the crawling game, you can place the pillow between the baby and the toy to encourage the baby to crawl over it. Of course, you can also lie between the baby and the toys by yourself and feel the fun of the little one crawling over you!
Standing: At this stage, your baby can hold your hand for balance and stand briefly. At first, the little guy may not be able to stand firmly. My little Baby is holding Baby's father's hand and bending his knees rhythmically, as if he is dancing. Remember, the key to this exercise is moderation, don't force your baby to stand for too long. Before long, your baby will be able to stand up on his own with furniture. At this time, you must pay attention to safety, because the baby may suddenly lose his balance and fall to the ground. In the process, it is likely to hit the corner of the table, the handle of the sofa, etc., so parents should prepare the anti-collision strips.
New toy play: now your baby doesn't just grab the toy and chew it! He would throw the toys in his hand all over the floor (Baby once threw toys behind him, beside him, in front of the table, under his stomach), and then picked up the toys he could see. Parents, don’t lose patience just because the toys you hand to your baby are always thrown away. “I’ll throw it for you and pick it up” is the fun of playing with toys at this stage. In addition to this, your baby will also learn a new skill for flipping hands: give your baby a ring or chew gum, and he will start to subconsciously switch toys from one hand to the other and back again. During this process, your baby's fine motor skills are further developed. I also like to play the "toy grab" game with Baby. This game is similar to the previous game of tug-of-war with a saliva towel: grab the toy your baby is holding and drag it into your arms, and you'll find your baby's grip tightens. At this time, if you forcibly grab it, the baby will protest. When you give him the toy again, you will find that he immediately grabs the toy. This process shows that the baby is starting to have memories! This is why I think it is best for parents to spend more time with their children and play less with their mobile phones at this stage. Otherwise, once the baby treats the mobile phone in your hand as his own toy, he will seize every opportunity to play with you the "snatch mobile phone" invented by him. game. If your baby has already started "grabbing the phone" with you, you can hide the phone, otherwise you will always let him see the phone without letting him play, or taking it away from him, which is not conducive to cultivating your baby's self-confidence. There is also a game of building blocks: give the baby a few wooden blocks and observe his new way of playing.
Playing with the body: The baby starts to play with himself. In addition to eating his hands, he will also start to tilt his little feet and start to chew on his toes. For a while, Baby's socks were always wet. Parents can wash their hands and put them within the baby's grasp, and the baby will take the initiative to grab your hand and start chewing - this is better than being nibbled on your nose, eyes and mouth while you are holding him! Baby would pat my breasts, or pull my suspenders while breastfeeding. This is part of your baby's development: he begins to explore the outside world with his hands and mouth, and his sense of touch develops further by touching different objects.
Weeding: Dr. Sears recommends letting your baby play weeding in the yard, of course, first of all, you have to have a yard...similar to having your baby sit in a high chair or dining chair, in front of you Put a pile of melt-in-your-mouth biscuits on the dinner plate, and the baby will gradually become familiar with the process of accurately grasping the biscuits with their hands and feeding them into their mouths. You can also cook a bowl of noodles, let it come to room temperature after the cold water, and watch how the baby's little hands grasp the soft and smooth noodles - parents need to be mentally prepared, this game may make a mess on the table, but it is really very interesting .
Pocketing: Dr. Sears says that babies at this stage will enjoy taking steel out of dad's shirt pocket.
Standing and walking: At this stage, the baby will slowly hold onto something and start to move! This is a historic moment when humans finally started walking upright! Pay attention to wrap the edges of furniture with sharp corners, and install safety locks on the handles of doors, cabinets or boxes to prevent the opened door from hitting the baby's body when the baby grabs hard.
Container play: Give your baby a box with toys that he won't swallow. Accompany him to take the toys out and put them in. This game helps your baby develop the concepts of "inside" and "outside", "big" and "small". A brand has also developed more interesting boxes, in which the baby has to adjust the toy in the right position - which can exercise more advanced fine motor skills.
Find toys: Now you can play the game "I hide you and find it" with your baby! Take the toy from his hand and hide it under the cushion next to him. Your baby will remember what you just did and find the toy under the cushion. This game can exercise your baby's memory development.
Advanced version of hide-and-seek: Parents can hide themselves behind the curtains, show their heads, call the baby's name, and encourage the baby to come to them. Next, you can hide yourself completely, just call the baby's name and let the baby crawl around the house looking for parents. It should be specially reminded that only one adult can hide at this stage, and the other adult needs to watch the baby all the time to avoid accidents during the baby's crawling and searching.
Gesture Games: Back to my favorite part of body games! At this stage, parents can make actions first and let the baby imitate. For example, the "clapping game": raise your palms high and stretch them forward; your baby will imitate your movements, so you can clap your hands successfully! Be careful not to hit too hard to prevent hurting the child. There is also a game of "waving goodbye": when goodbye, raise the baby's little hand and wave it while saying "goodbye, goodbye!" Soon the baby will be able to associate the action with the meaning of the action, and also the language associated with the action. The next time you say goodbye, just say "goodbye" and wave, and your baby will do the same. After that, as long as you say "goodbye", the baby will consciously wave his little fleshy hand.
Playing Balls: Ball games will be more abundant at this stage. In addition to rolling the ball, you can also toss the ball, teach the baby to pass the ball and so on. Baby will slowly learn simple instructions and play with adults if he likes it. It should be noted that try to use small, light and soft plastic balls to prevent accidents.
Identifying objects: When your baby looks at an object, teach your baby the name of the object, such as "flower." If the baby also makes a sound similar to "flower", parents can affirm and encourage repeating: "Yes! It is the flower. The flower--!" Let the baby know that he is right. When your baby feels affirmed, he or she will be more active in developing a certain skill.
The above describes how to play with children aged 0-12 months. Next, I will share with parents some "games" that can be played since the baby is born.
Parents might say, oh my gosh, changing diapers can actually be a play? That's right! Never think of changing a diaper as a simple childcare task, it can become one of your high-quality parenting moments. Before each diaper change, remember to prepare new diapers (or diapers), diaper cream, diaper rash cream, wet wipes (or hot water and towel), cotton tissue (or dry towel), changing pads, tissues and supplies. Change of clothes. Begin with a set phrase, such as "Baby, we're changing diapers!" and then gently undress your baby, wipe her little bottom, change her diaper (diaper), and put in a new diaper (or diaper). Throughout the process, describe to your baby what you're doing, or ask your baby how he's feeling: "Is baby comfortable?" "Is the diaper tight?" "Wow, is it comfortable to dry your ass?" , responded to him with the same hum. Remember to keep smiling the whole time, and don't frown or squeak even if you see much feces - this will make the baby feel rejected - my experience is to turn the momentary expression into a pleasant "wow" , Surprise!” The advantage of this is that the baby will be very cooperative with the diaper changing process, and it will also help the baby understand what you are doing and thus better understand the world.
Even though the maternity walls are covered with illustrations of how to do touch, most parents can have a hard time sticking to it; especially with the traditional northern way of raising a child, which involves laying the child almost motionless for the first few months. In fact, insisting on bathing your baby every day (the water temperature is about 37°C) is a good exercise for his physical fitness. After bathing, apply baby oil or body lotion to your hands and start your "Happy Moment"! The baby's soft and smooth skin is simply the best benefit for parents who have worked hard to bring a baby! During this process, you can carefully check your baby for any abnormalities (jaundice, rash, herpes, spots, birthmarks, etc.) Moe Dad likes to start with "Massage! Massage!" and then have a lot of fun doing the stroking. While reciting "knead the calf, knead the calf, knead the calf, knead the foot; knead the foot, knead the foot, knead the toes after kneading the foot; thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, little finger...", knead accordingly It can let the baby slowly understand the various organs of the body in the rhythmic fixed songs. Remember to be cheerful, lively and joyful, and keep calling your baby's name throughout to initiate the interaction. If he giggles, repeat the touch a few more times.
My dad and I both laughed and said that raising a baby made us a "neuropathy": when the baby didn't know anything at first, he basically talked, sang and danced by himself. Slowly, your baby will learn to stare at you, then the social smile of the second month, and then he will start "a, o, e" trying to talk, although it's not a real conversation! One thing to remember is that all the language you speak will become the material for your baby's future speech. Of course, some mothers will say that they don't know what to say to their babies. Talk to your baby about what you're doing, why you're doing it, what's going on with it, and what you think about yourself. In the newborn period, your gentle voice is soothing (no matter what you are saying); when the baby is 4 months, there is no need to respond immediately: if you go to another room and the baby While humming, you can first use words to appease him, "Baby, mom is doing laundry, and she will be here in two minutes! What are you doing? Oh, baby is so good, you know that mom is doing housework, right? Can you do it yourself? Let's play for a while!" Then just rush over there. When the baby is 2 years old, he can express his wishes more fluently, but before that, the more you talk to him, encourage him more, and give him more opportunities to speak, the more likely he is to develop himself better language and social skills.
Laughing is also a good interaction! Babies love chiseled faces, like Dad's; they also love a laugh that shows teeth and creates wrinkles. If he smiles at you, in response to his smile, he will laugh even more. Baby often plays by himself, and then suddenly turns to look at us - if he smiles at him in time at this time, he will smile happily and continue to play by himself. Laughter is an encouragement to your baby, and it is also the best and most direct affirmation of your baby's behavior before the baby can understand the language. One day for Baby for 3 months, at 5 am, I changed his diaper. He was very happy because his little butt was dry and laughed at me for half an hour. In addition, the baby's laughing and crying are also his initial expressions: if you do it wrong, he will cry; if you do it right, he will laugh. When Baby cries, we will try various methods (hug, burp, sleep, breastfeed, rub his stomach, etc.) to coax him. When he cries more, we know that this method is wrong; When the crying subsided and even started to laugh, we did the right thing. Through the baby's crying and laughing, parents can understand the baby better; through the parents' laughter, the baby can understand the ideas we want to convey to him. 55
A feature article on the UK Department for Education website teaching parents how to learn with their children highlights the following five points:
• Try to think from your baby's point of view: Knowing how your baby sees the world will make you more comfortable helping your baby learn;
• Let your baby be himself: Talk to him more at birth, encourage him to take risks at age 1, hug him more at age 2, appreciate his curiosity at age 3, and allow him to keep busy at age 4. He learns all the necessary skills at the age of 5;
• Be a playmate: you can also enjoy childhood with your baby;
• Valuing your feelings and your baby's feelings: You and your baby's feelings are equally important in any situation - understanding your own and your baby's emotions will be more helpful in dealing with things, whether in joy or in difficult times;
• Don't expect perfection: no one is perfect, and children will forgive us even if we occasionally make mistakes.
The principle of playing with your baby is nothing more than the above five points.
