Cause and Effect

Your Budding Little Scientist

Babies are like scientists, studying and exploring the world around them. In addition to Sensory Exploration, your baby will also be experimenting with Cause and Effect, testing different actions such as banging on different objects to make sounds, dropping objects to see what happens, turning a toy wheel to watch it spin, and pulling on the edge of a blanket to bring it closer. She may also use her mouth to explore objects (babies' mouths have the most sensory receptors of any part of their bodies), so be sure to provide her with items that are safe to play with.

Has your baby achieved the following Cause and Effect developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) she has already mastered to date!
