What is sensory play and why is it important for babies?

sensory play for babies

Sensory play is amazing and really beneficial for your little one, not only does it help them integrate their developing senses, it makes new brain connections, is a great way to bond with your baby and is a lot of fun.

We all have eight senses that we use all of the time to make sense of the world. They are the five senses that we commonly know about, our senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight and three body senses, proprioception, interception and vestibular senses.

Proprioception is our awareness of where our body is in space, our little one’s aren’t born knowing where their body is so activities that help their body scheme are really helpful for them.
