Parents get excited about board books and baby toys. However, those are usually pretty useless during the first few weeks and even months of your child’s life (unless they are high-contrast of course). That doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to stimulate them and help them develop.
In the first 3-4 months of their life, babies can focus on objects that are 8-12 inches away from them and during that time it’s very beneficial for a newborn to look at high-contrast images.
They support the baby’s cognitive development, can help them with visual tracking, and are a great way to keep your baby motivated, excited, and entertained during tummy time.
Research shows that
The best way you as a parent can stimulate baby’s vision is using black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colors. So what about those nice soft pastels that used to be so popular in baby toys and nurseries? While these may look pretty to you, they do nothing visually for your baby. Research has proven that black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development. Surround a baby with soft pastel colors, and you might as well be blindfolding him. Surround your baby with black and white or light and dark pictures, and watch your baby’s eyes light up. – www.askdrsears.com
You can use high-contrast images in various ways. Simply print them out, laminate them and use as cards. You can create a board book by gluing them onto cardboard, you can even use them to create a DIY mobile.
This free printable set consists of 22 A4 pages with two images per page. The pictures are big and simple, perfect for the first few weeks!
I highly recommend laminating the pictures to make them more durable.
