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.
