At three months your baby’s life is becoming more exciting because you will see her become stronger and more active. Your baby will want to reach out and grab nearby objects, even putting them in her mouth as a means of exploration. At three months your baby is no longer a passive observer, but entering an important phase in which she will develop a sense of control in her ever growing world.
Use rice or pasta to fill a plastic container. Making sure the container is well sealed, shake to one side or behind your baby and see if he can find it.
Exploring and touching
Give your baby safe objects from around the house to allow her to explore different shapes and textures – plastic kitchen utensils, pots, soft toys, etc.
Sing and help your baby do action songs: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Incy Wincy Spider, Round and Round the Garden, etc.
