Shake a Rattle
Sit your baby in an infant seat. Hold a rattle about 18-inches from his face. Shake the rattle a few times. Pause. Does your baby seem to focus on the rattle? Shake it some more. Each time you do so, look and see if baby is focusing on the rattle. Do this only for a few minutes each time- you don't want to overstimulate your little one!
You can also use rattles to help your baby track or find an object. Shake the rattle at one side of his head and see if baby tries to find the rattle. Have fun!
