Maximize Your Child's Vision
Things you can do to help your baby's eyes:
- Place her crib in the room's center or as far away from the wall as possible. Kids benefit from an unobstructed 360-degree view.
- Speak to baby from both up close and far away. This forces her to look around, helping her to develop vision and a sense of place.
- Hide things. Once baby is a few months old, partially cover her toys with a blanket. This helps her navigate the world in 3-D.
- Make a mess. Crawling under and around obstacles helps vision. For toddlers, make a gym of pillows, furniture, and toys.
