Cute dual-stage illustrations book that stimulates vision and encourages tummy-time
The Double-Sided Book includes two sides, one that offers intense visual stimulation and another that offers subtle stimulation. The book is appropriate for babies from day one, when their eyesight is still limited. Make sure you place the book at the appropriate distance from baby (8-12in/20-25cm in the first 2 months).
If your baby seems restless or uncomfortable (crying, averting her gaze, etc), adjust the level of stimulation. Move the illustrations to find an image he finds pleasing or cover some of the images with a soft bib or blanket, leaving only one within his field of vision. Alternatively, simply turn the book to the other side.
Immediately after birth, baby seeks visual stimulation beyond his blurry surroundings. Place the Double-Sided First Book to the side where baby's head is turned, to offer enriching visual stimulation 2-3 months
Baby's visual field is still limited. When baby lies on his stomach, raising his head to look at the book, he is strengthening his neck and shoulder muscles.
