Watching your baby look at you and smile is the most precious moment in parents’ lives. When your toddler turns 10-12 weeks old, they will start smiling at things that make them happy. That is the perfect time to experiment with new baby products and fun activities to bring that million-dollar smile to their face.
Your baby will smile more frequently over little things as they grow older. Everything you buy for them—from baby shampoo to their toys—will make your little one happy. The more you try new things and care for them, the more they smile.
Let’s check out some tips on encouraging your child to smile more.
Bond With Baby
Do you know babies learn smile-talking just when they are three months old? Smiling at them and making eye contacts are highly efficient ways to get your baby to smile back at you. Playing with them is also a great way to strengthen your bond and make your baby feel valued.
Giving them attention or spending quality time with them will help your baby connect with you. And it’s not that difficult. You can use baby toys, like wooden stacking blocks, Wooden puzzles, and push toys, to keep your little ones engaged in healthy activities. Choosing to pile these blocks or using other safe games can build a strong bond with your toddler.
Indulge In Healthy Eating
Babies need more healthy and nutritious food in their development age. A healthy child is a happy child. Your baby will flash a smile more frequently if fed its favourite baby foods. Since toddlers are picky eaters, cooking food that offers vital nutrition and a taste that your toddler will enjoy is hard.
The biggest issue with toddlers is that they have the habit of picking food from the floor, especially when developing teeth. They also start thumb-sucking. Some newborn rubber toys might be handy for kids who suck thumbs or eat stuff off the floor.
