Did you know that your baby’s early learning can begin even while in the womb? During this time your baby’s senses are already beginning to develop and respond to stimuli from the world around him.
even smell will also help his/her brain grow, as they begin to receive and process information about the outside world.
While sound will be baby’s primary source of stimulation in the womb, touch, vision, taste and even smell will also help his/her brain grow, as they begin to receive and process information about the outside world.
By week 15 your baby’s touch receptors, nose and taste buds are developed and he/she can already detect strong flavors in the amniotic fluid. Stimulate your baby’s taste buds by eating foods with a variety of tastes and smells.
Stimulate your baby through touch: when you feel your baby push out his hand, foot or bottom, gently touch back and try lightly massaging your baby. This touch stimulation will promote reactions in your baby.
By week 25 your unborn baby will be able to clearly hear your voice, and by week 27 most babies are able to recognize his/her parents’ voices.
Read and Sing: your unborn baby may not be able to understand the words, but he/she can hear and recognize regular patterns of sounds. Also try playing soothing music: studies show unborn babies respond positively to this.
Get plenty of rest, exercise, stay mentally calm, take pre-natal vitamins, and eat healthy. Do not smoke or take alcohol during pregnancy. All this will help your baby’s healthy mental development and learning ability later on.
