Babies are born Hungry, hungry for absorption of all information that they observe. This learning process helps them recognize the world around them soon after birth. This can be observed when babies recognize their mothers immediately after birth though they had never seen her earlier. They can use their memory and remember their mother’s smells & sounds. Hence they stop crying with even the slightest presence of their mother.
We usually notice these actions but we tend to ignore them and why the child needs brain nourishment and not just for the body. The baby is relying on your support at such an important learning phase in their life.
Importance of Early Brain Stimulation
Most of us are often in denial because we feel that the child doesn’t need to learn anything at this age. On the contrary, the first 3 years are the most important phase for early Brain development –
Stimulation Enhances IntelligenceRead More
The brain, sensory pathway and the nervous system need a planned and repeated sensory stimulation for their development. Repeating such sensory stimulation strengthens the internal wiring of the brain and increases the speed of brain function over the years to come.
Forming Neural ConnectionsRead More
Stimulation helps the baby form thousands of new neural connections every second and this develops their intelligence and coordination. This is more so in the first few months with the baby’s brain-building its wiring system during this time. It is an intense period of brain growth and network building a 'once in a life- time’ phase of learning that lays the foundation for brain development over the years to come.
Increase Baby’s CapabilitiesRead More
We can increase the baby’s achievement of developmental milestones in its early months and years by planned stimulation. A baby’s intellectual and motor development happens from circumstantial sensory experiences mostly by chance. But if we provide the stimulation on purpose and not by accident, we can bring up the child in a structured environment that is rich in stimulation. This helps develop sharper brains just as feeding nutritious food does to the body.
