Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power

Boosting Your Baby’s Brain Power



Holly Engel-SmothersSusan M. Heim


Award Winner!
A newborn baby’s brain is quite phenomenal, with more than 100 billion neurons that would stretch more than 60,000 miles! These neurons generally must form connections within the first eight months of a baby’s life to foster optimal brain growth and lifelong learning. From the day a baby is born, behaviors of moms, dads, and caregivers are crucial to ensuring that babies reach their full potential. This parent guidebook offers many suggestions for developing and nurturing maximum brain power during the essential early years. Parents will learn that babies don’t need toys or DVDs or fancy mobiles nearly as much as they need simple interaction, eye contact, and conversation from the adults who care for them.

Also available as an e-book !

Topics include:

  • Factors that influence brain growth in the womb
  • Fattening up the brain
  • Windows of opportunity
  • Development of language, vision, hearing, and motor skills
  • Red flags in your baby’s development
  • Uncovering your baby’s temperament
