2. Eye contact.
“We have known for a long time that infants are drawn to the human face, but with computer-enhanced research we were able to realize what they look at: the eyes. Babies have a preference for the human face in general, and eye contact in particular. The one thing to remember about this is that they can only see clearly about a foot in front of them, so remember to smile, stay close, and look ‘em in the eye.”
This shouldn’t be difficult anyway. Once you start looking at those little eyes it will be difficult to stop. I constantly wonder what they are thinking about and how they see the world around them.
