Ideas for activities with your baby aged between 0 and 12 months

Right from birth: skin-on-skin with mom

In the first few months, your baby has an overwhelming need for contact with you. To reassure them, you can set aside a few moments of every day for some skin-on-skin time with them: in a warm room, place your baby naked (or in diapers) against your bare chest, and cover them with a soft blanket. Make sure you place their head against your heart, so that they can hear it beating, reminding them of the time they spent in the womb. The benefits of skin-on-skin time for new-born babies are widely acknowledged by scientists nowadays, and you yourself will quickly see how much it soothes and relaxes them.
