If you haven’t started reading to your little one yet, don’t fret, its never too late to start. Reading with babies and children is a constant learning journey with every word read to them beneficial to their cognitive development. As bub listens to your words, she will creating sound patterns in her mind, working on recollection and memory to understand the words and their meaning, even though she can’t say them just yet.
Board books are the perfect style of book for you to read with your little one, as the books are designed with little hands in mind. As bub grows you will find he can start holding the books himself whilst you read.

Creative exploration is an ongoing process from the minute your little one is born. First through observation, and now they are beginning to put what they are learning into practice. Now at a stage of purposefully picking up toys, banging them, dropping them and chewing on them and really spending time examining the items in front of them, determining the relationship they have with the item and its purpose.
This is a really great time to sit back and watch your baby interact with their world, every day they are busying themselves learning and exploring their environment as their senses work hard transmitting information to their brain allowing them to creatively interact with the things around them.
Teething pain doesn’t sleep, and neither will bub! We don’t blame them either, for anyone who has ever suffered a toothache, you know what we are talking about. The pressure of those little teeth pushing through is enough to wake your baby at all hours of the night. Sometimes all we can do is to be there with them, giving cuddles and comfort whether the pain hits day or night.Night time teething not only affects bub routines and behaviours, but mum and dad also suffer trying to function on sleepless nights. By working to maintain sleep habits you can help them through and maybe catch a few zzz’s yourself.
With all this growing, you may have forgotten one crucial habit that we as parents need to instil in our little ones, no matter how early and that is Dental Hygiene. Often dental Hygiene is overlooked in our parenting repertoire as the arrival of teeth is usually accompanied by sleepless nights, crying, fussing and frustration, but looking after their teeth now is crucial to their development, physically and with their speech progress.
