Believe it or not, babies can become easily bored if left with nothing to do which can make for a fussy and unhappy baby. The good news is that it's easy to entertain your one month old baby and have fun while you do. A baby at this young age does not have interest in expensive toys or electronics, the most entertaining thing to them is your attention. Entertaining your young baby takes patience and time but it is easily one of the best parts of being a parent.
Your newborn is progressing from the infant stage of eating and sleeping to the playing stage. Now your baby will be better at focusing and seeing than he or she was as an infant baby, which makes them want to imitate you. This is the time when sticking out your tongue on command becomes very fun for your baby.
It's important to remember that you are the most important thing in your baby’s life right now. Therefore, you, are what your baby wants to play with the most. Your baby craves your attention and playtime more than anything else, no toy in the world could compare to this.
It can be fun to try to get your baby to imitate you. It is important to remember that your baby does not understand hips and such just yet, so poses are less effective than facial expressions. Using facial expressions can get your baby to imitate you and develop his or her facial muscles. These muscles will be helpful when it comes to learning how to talk.
Another great activity is to read your little one. Reading to your newborn is not for teaching them how to read just yet, it's instead useful for you baby to hear your voice and develop the language aspect of their brain.
Incorporating soft toys and your interaction between the toys and your baby can also be a lot of fun for them. These toys feel good on your baby’s skin and can help build the caring nature of your baby. These toys can eventually even become safety nets for the child and comfort your baby as he or she begins to grow.
No matter how you choose to entertain your baby, the strong bond that will develop between you and your baby will last a lifetime!
