Baby Resolutions: Help Baby with Good Habits for the New Year

December 21, 2012

Well, it’s that time of the year again – it’s time to put together your New Year’s resolutions (and vow not to break them no matter what happens!) But have you ever thought about New Year’s resolutions for your baby? Here are a few of our favorites that will help your little one grow and bring fun to the entire family!

It’s time to begin learning a language – a foreign language! New studies show that babies have a penchant for learning multiple languages in their earliest infancy. This could be your golden opportunity to not only teach them a language you know, but to learn a new language together – parent and baby. We live in a global world, so why not raise a global baby?

Get rid of that pacifier! There are new studies that show that overuse of a pacifier beyond a certain age can have detrimental effects on the normal development of babies’ teeth. The pacifier should only be used when your baby goes to sleep, and then should promptly be removed. By two years of age, you should be doing your utmost to help them break this habit.

Music makes the world go ‘round! Don’t neglect the musical benefits on brain development for your baby. There are a lot of different ways to promote musical development. Sing to your baby, sing with your baby, and don’t be afraid to start music lessons for your baby earlier than grade school. Children benefit from better spatial reasoning and a host of other things!

Explore the power of art. It helps promote communication, complex problem-solving, and many other real-life skills! So don’t be afraid of a little splattered paint – it’s doing them a lot of good.

Don’t underestimate the power of routine. Once your baby is comfortably established and is ready to begin a steady routine, don’t hesitate to put your plan to work. A healthy routine is great for anyone, especially a baby. If you expect your baby to fall asleep by a certain time, then you have to set up a routine that falls in line with that. Build your routine around specific events like mealtime.

These are just a few ways that you can get innovative when it comes to actually implementing resolutions. Remember to have fun with these ideas and you will definitely be on your way to a new baby and a new you!
