Prior to placing baby on the floor you may want to lay down a playmat or blanket to help make the area comfortable and safe. Be sure there are no small objects laying close by. Sometimes it helps to prop babies up, giving them a better look at their surroundings. Try placing a rolled-up baby blanket under your child’s chest, increasing the size of the roll as your little one grows and gets stronger.
Provide entertainment for your baby. Place some toys such as a noisy rattle, stuffed animal or interesting objects that can be found around the home. Offer a variety of items of various colors, shapes, and textures. Parents can spend some time getting down with their baby to bond and interact. You can lay out some brightly colored picture books and read or point out the objects in the books. Mirrors are also a great choice as babies are fascinated with watching their reflection. This will help keep him interested.
