Babies love to look at overhead mobiles. Change the hanging toys with different shapes and colors to keep baby’s interest. If the mobile has music, sing a long. Baby will listen! Toys must be attached with very short cords to avoid any risk of entanglement or strangulation. For safety, mobiles must come down once baby can sit.
Most cribs are placed longways against a wall. Change the direction your baby sleeps—head to the right one night and head to the left the next. All the interesting stuff is happening away from the wall, so this helps your baby get stronger looking in both directions and helps prevent flattening of one side of the head.
Remember: back to sleep, tummy to play.
Build on tummy time by putting baby on their stomach after a diaper change. Help build strong arm, neck, and back muscles!
