Peek A Boo
Peek A Boo is probably the most well known baby game. Around three months of age, you can start playing a simple version of Peek A Boo with your baby. This game helps memory and anticipation while also building a stronger social connection with you. It is a very important baby game since it introduces the concept of object permanence (objects and people exist even though your baby cannot see them).
Your baby can be in a seated position or lying down. When you have her attention, simply put your hands over your face and say, "Where's Mommy?" After a second or two, remove your hands with a smile and say "Peek A Boo!" or "Here I am!"
If your baby becomes upset, you may want to delay introducing the game for a week or two!
