Rhymes, finger plays and lullabies
When bathing or changing nappies, at mealtimes or just before the good-night kiss, finger plays, cuddling games and nursery rhymes offer wonderful opportunities to make your child feel happy. Cuddling, tingling, tickling and laughing are always fun and help build a relationship of trust with your baby. And they can be important learning experiences, especially for very small children. Try it – your child’s hearty laughter will be a lasting reward. However, if you want to calm your child at bedtime, make sure these little games are gentle and comforting.
