The time spent with your little one should not only be fun-filled but also include some delightful activities that help in boosting their tiny brain. During the first year of babies, trillions of brain-cell connections are grown. And if these are not wired together, they may be lost during the child's school years.
Connect with your babies and provide them loving, caring and language enriched experiences. It is an excellent way to give baby's brain's neural connections more chances to get wired together.
