1.) Dear Parenting,
I often wonder when my newborn baby, Owen, can see. Can he see me at all? Does he notice moving objects? Do you think he can recognize my face? A baby’s vision, or lack there of, is a topic that intrigues me as a parent. Also, can you please explain the progression of Owen’s visual abilities?
An eye opening experience
2.) Dear Parenting,
What should I expect over the course of my baby’s first year in her locomotive development? What will Madison’s significant milestones be, and when will they occur? In your opinion, which milestone has the most impact on changing my baby’s role with her environment?
Come on baby, do the locomotion
3.) Dear Parenting,
Several times, I have heard the expression, “Your baby’s brain is plastic.” What exactly does that mean? I think it has something to do with the development of the brain. Also, what do you think about videos like Baby Einstein, Baby Bach, and Baby Mozart? Do you think they help stimulate an infant’s brain development? Can they make my baby smarter?
Paper or Plastic?
