Mother & Baby (Australia) - - First Steps -

1 Roll a ball

Your lit­tle one will re­ally love play­ing this simple game. Gently roll a ball and en­cour­age your baby to fol­low it. When the ball stops, he will nat­u­rally want to stop too to get the ball.

2 Set up an ob­sta­cle course

Lay down a blan­ket, doona and rug for your baby to walk over. He’ll need to work out how to al­ter the way he’s walk­ing on a sur­face that isn’t com­pletely flat, so he’ll prob­a­bly stop and as­sess each dif­fer­ent sur­face as he en­coun­ters it.

3 Play a game of copy­cat

Be his mir­ror and walk along­side him, and stop when he does. Then walk again – and stop – and you’ll soon find he copies you.
