Caring for babies

One of the most important things you do each day is provide infants with an environment where they feel both safe and happy. Here are a few suggestions for helping them develop healthy social and emotional behaviors.

  • Responds promptly to babies’ needs.
  • Talk with babies at every opportunity.  Sing lullabies.  Read simple books.
  • Think of ways to make babies laugh- make funny faces, play simple games.
  • Encourage babies to explore their environment.  Give them freedom to climb and freedom to roam.  Let them touch and feel the items that interest them.
  • Be sensitive to a baby’s cues.  If she is over-stimulated, remove the source of stimulation.  If she is distressed, soothe her.
