Black & White Sensory Images
High contrast black-and-white or bold colourful images are the mostpopular “toy” when it comes to newborns. They stimulate the development ofbaby’s optic nerves. When baby focuses on such visual stimuli it trains theirvision, teaching the eye muscles and brain to coordinate and functionproperly.
During tummy time show baby a highcontrast card in their line of vision, and slowly move it upward to see iftheir head moves up. This will strengthen neck and back muscles which is aprecursor to eventually sitting, and in time, way way into the future, forwriting.
Not all baby’s like tummy time so youcould also place the cards around baby head in the line of vision whilst theyare lay on their backs for a lovely quiet activity.
On both activities place baby on a playgym or mat so they are comfortable and safe, you could also roll up a cellularblanket or muslin to place under baby during tummy time to strengthen thosemuscles even more.
