Your Brilliant Baby in Week 17: Paying Attention to Patterns
What your infant learns this week
To keep your baby’s mind sharp, make little changes to his environment. For instance, tie short ribbons to the horses on your child’s mobile. Occasionally swap out the pictures that your baby looks at as you change his diapers. For a week wear the same earrings, then change them. See if your baby notices. Most likely, you’ll see interest written all over his face.
