How (and why) to play with your baby, month-by-month


What’s really happening in your baby’s brain when they play peek-a-boo or clack blocks together? A lot. While play may seem all like fun and games, it’s actually your baby’s first work, and a crucial part of their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. In this episode, Dana Greulich, MD, a pediatrician at the Children's Wisconsin Westbrook Pediatrics primary care office, shares just why it’s so important for your baby to play — and why YOU are their most important playmate. From how to choose quality, age-appropriate toys to why your pediatrician keeps talking about tummy time, we’re breaking down baby’s play month-by-month. Listen on to learn all about the importance of play and how you can get in on the fun with your baby in this episode of Healthy Baby, Happy Parent from Children’s Wisconsin.
