Taking care of your baby starts right from the time you become pregnant. Take good care of yourself and your baby will develop properly in the womb. Maintain a healthy weight; take the right foods that are essential for baby’s brain development, prenatal vitamins and folic acid. Taking adequate amounts of folic acid helps form healthy brain cells and prevent your child from developing autism and reduces the risk of birth defects. The following aspects during pregnancy will help in your baby’s brain development.

Memory techniques-After the arrival of little one

Brain-cell connections grow rapidly during the first few years of life. Recognition of familiar faces and voices during the third month is an indication of your baby’s memory. From that point you can do a lot more to hone their memory and attention.


Safe and secure

Human brains can learn best in a safe and secure environment. Provide your child a safe and comfortable place to dwell. Provide them the best love and care and always give them a soft touch, loving voice in a mild tone. A research study revealed the fact that babies who are not often touched have brains that are smaller than normal for their age, and close interaction with the child helps direct her attention to your speech.


Talk more

Right from the fourth month of your baby, start talking to them. Tell their names loud and they will respond by babbling and cooing. Make them hear good number of words. You can also point to colorful pictures in the books and start telling stories. Include lots of actions like climbing, running and dancing when you enact stories. The parts of the brain responsible for understanding speech and language require maximum input from you. So talk in the right tone with necessary modulations. Also be attentive and understand their responses to build positive brain circuitry in the limbic area of the brain.


Establish a routine

During the first few years of your baby’s life, follow a routine to enhance your child’s memory. If you allot a specific time for reading and playing, your child will start looking for the same time. While teaching, maintain eye contact to make them recognize facial expressions.


Teach new things

Play with them with different toys and make them to recall the old one too. During play time you can teach new skills each week. Show new objects and don’t have long sessions for playing or reading as they become bored and distracted.


Repeat and repeat

It is always a good idea to repeat the old things you taught them to improve existing neural connections. Showing repeated things will establish deeper memories and strong neural connections. Have a right balance in teaching new skills and in making them recall the older skills.


Memory games

According to American academy of pediatrics, children less than 18 months are not supposed to get exposed to any screen time. This non interactive viewing can hinder their language development.

Instead encourage them to play memory games. Some screen free memory games include tongue twisters, pengaloo and coin match.



Research study shows that infants who take naps (at least 30 minutes) after learning tend to process and preserve memories during the daily naps. The sleep after learning helps them in retaining memories after extended periods of time.



Music is one of the proven ways to enhance child’s memory, focus and attention. Make them listen to calm, instrumental music.



Involve your children in re organizing their toys after play time and in re arranging the books. Appreciate for the work they do and this appreciation will last in their memory. This will encourage them to do more tasks.



Give your children foods rich in antioxidants and proteins. These foods will boost their memory power. Ensure they get the right amount of vitamins and milk.


Good luck to boost your baby’s memory. Happy parenting.
