Make sure to add story time to your baby's routine.
What You Need:
What To Do:
- Settle down in a comfortable chair and snuggle baby close to you so that he can see and feel your mouth as you speak. Offer a pacifier or other comfort items if needed.
- Use your imagination to weave a tale. Begin with “Once upon a time there was a little baby (insert your child’s name).” Let your imagination take the story along, using creative words and varying the tone of your voice.
- If baby becomes restless, you can also try signing songs or reciting nursery rhymes. These are alternative forms of storytelling with music, rhythm and rhyme.
