A short game of copy-cat can help you bond with your baby while having fun.
Sit opposite your baby. They might be on your lap, in a high chair or on a play mat. Wait for them to make a facial expression, then copy them.
This might be a smile, a frown, sticking your tongue out, scrunching your face.
You can also copy their noises or movements too.
See how they react to you copying them. Give them time to think and maybe do a different face. If they copy you, keep going, because this means they’re learning and having fun.
Good to know
Communicating with your face or body is a very important part of building relationships and learning language.
