Sensory Development (6 Months)

July 7, 2022

Normal Development:

  • Depth perception begins to develop (3-7 months)

What You Can Do:

  • Allow your baby to explore different surfaces whenever possible (grass, sand) and talk about how they feel different
  • Play with toys in the bath (containers and cups)
  • Toys with different textures
  • Toys they can explore with their mouth
  • Take your baby in their stroller over different types of surfaces (bumpy, smooth, etc.) and talk about how they feel different

Our Advice:

  • Give your baby plenty of opportunities to explore with his or her body and mouth, and try not to panic about germs.
