Let’s face it – parents can’t stop kissing their babies! Those adorable faces, those irresistibly chubby cheeks, those tiny hands and feet… And today we added in a little learning to the kisses!
Diaper time is a great moment for this activity, but any time will do, really. As you kiss each part of baby, say, “I love your feet/tummy/cheeks” etc.
Perfect places for kisses: hands, feet, foreheads, eyebrows, ears, noses. And really anywhere! This foot is about to get a kiss of course.
You can also bring stuffed animals into the game. “Giraffe loves your cheeks, Veronika.”
Babies really absorb language when it’s combined with actions in this way – plus they get to feel you’re affection! So get smooching.
