Games for 0 - 3mths Tracking Objects
From about 6 weeks onwards your baby is learning how to track objects. You can help your baby track objects and help your babies eye movements as follows:
Attach a toy onto a stick (for example you can selotape a toy to a bamboo cane).
Then hold the stick so that the toy is about 10-20cm in front of his/her face, once your baby has fixed their eyes on it move it slowly from side to side.
Babies develop at their own pace. Try this once or twice a day but do not worry if they can’t do it at first – it may take up to 3 months.
Do not get annoyed with your baby if they are not quite there yet, and do no keep trying it repeatedly. Games are only fun if we are not forced to do them.
