A newborn’s vision begins very poor and blurry from Birth and you may even notice that their eyes do not align perfectly immediately. Experts agree that the best way to stimulate a newborn’s vision is by using high contrast pictures.
Studies have proven that black and white images register powerfully on a baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to the baby’s brain. Stronger signals means greater brain growth and faster visual development.
In the first 3 months, babies can focus on objects that are 8-11 inches away. This is more or less the distance from their parents’ faces while nursing or feeding.
Black and white or contrasting toys such as mobiles, rattles, books and other exciting toys will grab your baby’s attention far better if they are the right colours.
In your baby’s early months try to resist the pale blue and pink toys and go for the black, white and red one.
