Every parent wants to give their child this best advantage possible. One of the ways you can do this is by directly stimulating your infant’s vision and brain as soon as they are born. This means that you will need to be deliberate in what you expose your baby to.
Babies are first fascinated by their mothers face and love to look at it. However, research has shown that in addition to mom’s face, babies are fascinated by high contrast images. When a baby is born they can only see black, white and shades of gray these are the colors that you should be using to stimulate visual as well as brain development. A few weeks after birth babies are also able to recognize red. This is why any good infant stimulation program should involve the colors black, white and red.
You may be wondering how you can expose your baby to these colors in order to develop visual and brain development. The answer lies in simply making sure these colors are readily available in your baby’s environment. One of the best ways to do this is by using infant stimulation prints. Infant stimulation prints are convenient because they can be used anywhere and in many different ways.

- Frame them and hang them near your baby’s crib.
- Tack them on the wall.
- Create a line and hang them near wear baby sleeps or crawls.
- Laminate them and give them to baby as a toy.
- Print them on sturdy coverstock paper and use them as flashcards.
