Babies love babies and they also love looking at themselves - even newborn babies.
To see your little one's reaction to a mirror, you can lay them next to a mirror (make sure it’s safe and secure, of course!) or you can hold a mirror on one side of your baby's face and let your little one wiggle, kick, and maybe even smile in delight in their own cute reflection.
Of course your newborn won’t yet recognise themselves in the mirror, but this opportunity offers a moment for intense focus using something no newborn can resist: the human face.
Gazing at their reflection
helps your baby's development too also encourages babies to practice visually tracking and helps build their sense of self-awareness.
