Sensory development in babies

From birth, your baby's five senses are awakened and gradually mature with external stimulation.

  • From around the second month of life, your baby can focus on a moving object, such as a spinning mobile, for example.
  • From birth, your baby has a keen sense of smell and recognizes your comforting scent.
  • They can tell the difference between sounds like "ba" and "da" and turn their eyes to the surrounding sounds.
  • Your baby prefers a sweet taste and loves skin-to-skin contact.
