Summary: Even though your baby may not recognise themselves, looking into a mirror is still a fun play experience. Gazing at their reflection will assist in the development of their self awareness, cognitive and social skills.

  • Sit facing your baby while holding the mirror.
  • Encourage your baby to become familiar with themselves by pointing at your baby’s reflection then saying their name.
  • Baby-safe mirrors are available from some toy suppliers and baby supply shops.

Mirror Rhyme

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who is the fairest of them all?
Mirror, mirror what do I see?
Someone looking back at me!
