For many new parents, worrying about how to make each moment count through their interactions with their baby is somewhat normal. Quality time spent with your children is vitally important, and Erin Frank, pediatrician with Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, notes that meaningful play and interaction with babies is a great way to boost brain development. Reading books, talking and singing to them from a very early age can stimulate their brain through the different colors and words. Kyle D. Pruett, a clinical professor of Child Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, says that babies' brains grow at a faster rate each day than adults' brains do in an entire year. To promote healthy baby brain development, Pruett recommends a few of these helpful playtime suggestions.
