For Babies

Touch is a primary way for babies to interact with and learn about the world. Providing “tactile rich” experiences is a critical job of parents and caretakers.

Here are some ways to do this:

  • Water play during baths
  • Creams and moisturizers
  • Taking the baby’s hand and rubbing over varied surfaces.  You can add a language component by labeling the sensation
  • Baby books with textures
  • Infant massage (there are books on this)
