Day 78 - Follow the leader

Today's Tip - Exercise your baby's eyes as much as his body

Our son is coming along nicely in the physical development department, but he didn't seem to be tracking objects well. It makes sense to give him tummy time and to talk to him for vocal development, why not exercise his eyes too? I started doing that and three weeks later he's following objects like a champ. OK, like a baby.

The best way to go about it is to find an object he's interested in, which usually has bright, contrasting colors and makes noise too. Have him try to follow it side to side and up and down. Repeat until he grows tired of it. It'll be pretty quick in the beginning, but soon you'll find he stays interested and focused longer.
