How can you encourage the development of a baby's senses?

Research has shown that baby's senses start to develop even before they're born. Once they're born, with so much more to experience,  this development really starts to progress.

Babies initially recognize their mothers by smell and love the sense of touch - being cuddled, held, and breastfed. 

But your baby's development is also enriched through sight, hearing and taste.

Psychologist and psychoanalyst Dr Harry Ifergan guides us through how to help develop your baby's five senses as much as possible.
