How to Read a Book for a New Born Baby?
If you remember reading in my previous contents, I had mentioned that you could read books to a new born baby. This way you could teach them new languages, you could educate them from that age. Yes, it is very true and I have seen this through my own eyes and experienced it by my own self. It is also true that even when your baby is not born, you could emotionally engage with them during your pregnancy. When you read a funny book and start laughing, your baby will start kicking and moving and get very excited and happy. Unlike, when you read a sad or emotional story book; your baby start stretching so hard and you right away feel like they do not want you to continue. If you have even experienced being in a funeral (God forbids) and if you experienced crying during that funeral, you right away feel that your baby wants you to just get out of that sad environment and simply change your place. Providing a positive and happy environment has a huge impact on your baby’s mental development and its functions.
Your tone, in which you read a book for your new born baby is extremely important. Mother’s voice has magic! Lower your voice while reading a book for your little angel. Position yourself closer to your baby while reading. Make sure to read it in a very soft and sweet voice so that it calms and comforts your baby mentally and also for the mental growth of your baby as well as bonding you along with your baby, this is a true miracle.
When you are reading for your new born baby angel, make sure those stories are positive, educative and fun for yourself. When you enjoy reading stories, your true feeling could be felt very effectively by your baby through your voice. In this very moment your baby is actually grasping what you are feeding them through reading. Remember! Words are very powerful if translated and transferred properly and effectively. You need to pay attention where to raise your voice a little more. When and which part of the story you sound funny for them, how to read it when you are reading a sentence and how to read it when you are reading a question or a surprising and astonishing sentence. It is through your words that you make your baby the person who he will become one day.
As I said there is magic at your (mother’s) voice and words. You could help your baby in their cognitive development through reading. You are developing a bond with your baby which is everlasting, by being there for your little one every single night at their nighttime stories. We all know that mothers do have a good bond with their children as well as fathers. The bond which could be made through your nighttime stories is actually much more powerful. Doing so, your child will run late from the school but will never ever forget to come and hug & kiss you before leaving home. They would rather miss a favorite sport than to go without you.
How to choose books for your baby in their early ages?
You could continue to read nighttime / bed time stories until your child is at the ages of 3 to 6 months old. Of course, you could do so for as long as you wish to. At that moment you could offer some soft plastic books which are designed not in color but black and white shapes to let your baby play with it. Doing so your baby’s eyesight and its functional development will be very much enhanced and facilitated. As you may know that at the early ages baby’s eyes are unable to see in color but black and white. Therefore, you would offer them something which is useful for them at that age.
Below I would provide you with some examples of baby books for their early ages so that you could visualize.
You could always consider e-books as well but in order to do so I would suggest you play and listen to it by yourself first due to the quality of its sound and articulation which is the most important part of it. When you feel like it is the right tool for your baby, then you could decide to expose your baby to listen to it. I am saying this because nothing can compare with the love and compassion which can be delivered through your (mother’s) voice to your baby.
Once they reach the ages of 9 – 12 months you could offer some color books. Doing so they will be exposed in colors specially red. You may have noticed that baby toys are mostly manufactured in red color. So know that there is a good and very valid reason behind it because after black and white they actually start seeing red color.
By offering the right colors at the right moment of their life, you are actually helping them build proper coordination between their eyes, hands and brain. In doctors term, this is called (eye hand coordination) but in reality brain is very much involved in the eye hand coordination which makes this function successful. Therefore, reading and delivering the quality sound through your words help in developing your baby’s brain. So even before thinking to develop visuals in your baby, you must think of a way to facilitate their brain development which then becomes critically important for their eye hand coordination.
An eye examination through an optometrist could be worth every year for assuring to maintain a healthy eyesight. If you have a pediatrician, you could ask him or her for a reference but if not you could locate one nearby you.
In order to maintain a good and healthy eyesight avoid exposing your baby to digital objects. Do not let them in front of a TV for more than 15 minutes per day in their early ages.
Consider to have as much colorful fruits and vegetables as possible. All the colorful vegetables and fruits are very rich sources of Vitamin A which is best recommended by Optometrists during your child’s early ages. In fact, we must consider serving them during our pregnancy at first and foremost.
Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 12 are very good for the brain development of your baby. They could be found in fish, shrimps and all sorts of sea foods. Dairy products for instance eggs are good sources of Omega vitamins. Omegas are actually very good vitamins for all ages. It helps in concentration, it results in productivity, it calms and relieves the brain and gives a good boost for its better functioning.
