Lis­ten to the waves

Mother & Baby (UK) - - BABY & TODDLER -

Sit with your baby in your lap and lis­ten to the noises you can hear around you – the swish of the waves, the rat­tle of peb­bles, the calls of seabirds. Talk to your baby about what he can hear, and mimic the noises for him. ‘These lis­ten­ing skills feed into talk­ing,’ says Cassie. ‘You’re help­ing your baby make sense of the world around him.’ He’ll find it re­ally sooth­ing if you shush him in time to the swish of the waves, too.
