The Benefits of Fully Matured Senses: Enjoying the World

Your baby’s senses have now more or less matured and through these mature senses, she enjoys full and rich insight into the little-known world around her. It's time to help her explore and learn to make the finer distinctions between similar things.

Sight

In the visual realm, your baby is learning to distinguish between shapes, colors and sizes.

Sound

In the auditory realm, she distinguishes between different tones and sounds, such as volume and the difference between a piano and a trumpet. Dancing together to the beat of your favorite music, emphasizes the beat itself and introduces her to the link between beat and movement .

Taste and Smell

As you add solids to her diet, you add a new dimension of tastes and smells to her ever-expanding sensory world. When you prepare meals, draw her attention to the aroma of the food you are preparing.

Tiny Tips

  • To help develop your baby’s attention to details, look at a picture with him. First, show him the whole picture and then start focusing on the details.
  • Share your pleasures and joys with your baby – your favorite tune, the scent of a rose or a beautiful sunset. This reinforces the idea that our world is enjoyable and is there for everyone to see, taste, smell and touch.
  • Encourage your baby to touch his world by offering him a wide variety of toys of different shapes, textures and materials, which he can rattle or crumple.
