Through touch, babies also become more aware of their surroundings. They were in a warm and cozy tummy with fluid surrounding them for an entire pregnancy. Then they pop out into a room with bright lights and a bunch of doctors and nurses with masks on their faces. Give them a hug and cuddle with them after an experience like that!

baby vision on previous One Sassy Doctor posts. Initially, a newborn can see only about 8 to 12 inches from his face and tries to focus when close up to something fun, like mommy’s face. Initially, babies are not able to focus on objects that are far away, so if you’re waving a red flag across the bedroom as you do a silly dance, don’t be offended if only your partner is laughing at you. One note: young babies do respond to bright light and actually prefer (as noted by eye opening) lower light. Babies love faces, bright colors and high-contrast patterns with movement. So, how can we have some Sassy silly vision fun?

What’s better than being silly with baby? Being silly and having fun with our babies & toddlers is a fabulous way to promote development and bond with baby. Letting loose gives mom & dad a little taste of what it’s like to be a baby or toddler again. In the everyday stressors of life, we often lose the laughing & creativity that silly play has to offer. One Sassy Doctor’s prescription for “bringing silly back” is here!
