Things Every Newborn's Parents Must do in the Initial Months:

If you're a new parent, you know that raising your baby is now the biggest job in the world. From feeding and bathing to preparing for night-time sleep and early day waking, it seems important to have a full understanding of how to care for your little one from day one. There are so many things to think about, with new parents it's hard to know where to start. The Newborn period is often the most stressful time of your life, and it can be overwhelming.

If you are wondering what things to do in the initial months, it's always better to take guidance from experts. While you can always refer back to the development milestones and activities for your baby, one of the important things that you can do for them is to communicate effectively.
Communication is one of the most important pillars of your baby’s growth. Now you may be wondering how to do that when your baby doesn’t even say a word!
Here’s a guide from our research team:

1. Talking softly and in a calm voice:
Talk to your baby in a soft, calming voice. Try to say things slowly. Although they are yet to understand a sentence, you can say things slowly, make gestures and club it with actions like eating food, sleeping, or playing. It will gradually help your baby to understand the words and their meaning.

2. Making Cooing Sounds:
It doesn’t harm you to be a little silly and make cooing sounds. Your baby now can make cooing sounds and if you are reciprocating in the same manner, they feel encouraged. It will also help to build a strong bond with you. Let’s get started with your cooing session then.

3. Taking a home tour:
Hold your baby and move around the house. While touring you can utter different words slowly and introduce them to your baby. Remember, they will take much time to grasp those words. But in this way, they will be familiar with listening to new words.

4. Going out:
Similar to a home tour you can also take your baby out and point at things in the garden or on the road and talk about the surroundings. Make sure to keep your voice soft and utter words slowly so your baby can understand something.

There are many more things that you can experiment with in your daily life when it comes to helping your baby with language skills and speaking ability. You can introduce new words through
flashcards, sing songs to your baby and encourage them to make different sounds. This will not only help them bond with you but make them curious and have a fun educational time. To explore the flashcards, maracas for your singing sessions, and books to read to your little one you can go to, we have designed age-appropriate activity kits for your baby from the age of 0-3. You can find flashcards, maracas and other interesting toys in the Tinyvers activity kit 3. Have fun exploring!
