Studies show that the first two years of a baby's life are critical in shaping the adult person he will be.

In fact, his worldviews are based on the sequence of events, experiences and intimate memories in the emotional and non-verbal layer during this period, and these will determine the starting point from which he will continue to develop.

Just like a building that rests on strong and solid foundations, we would like to give the baby the experiences that will be the fertile ground for good development and the realization of his high potential.

Shiron Alter

, an infant development instructor and diagnostician,

divides these experiences into three levels of learning:

motor experiences

It is important that you give the baby the movement in the space that he needs, and this changes between the stages of his development.

For example, a one-day-old baby needs safe movement while being held tightly in the cradle, "tiger on a tree" or vertical position, while a 3-6 month old baby will need freer movement on the hands and on the surface that will encourage passive rollovers.

Later, a baby that crawls or walks will allow you to literally swing it in the air and with it you will be able to perfect the movement by crossing obstacles and creating movement challenges.

Sensory experiences

Exposure to as many types of textures as possible and as much touch as possible will develop the baby's sensory systems.

In the first months, make gentle contact with a feather, a handkerchief and touch with the tips of the fingers alongside a deep touch by squeezing inside a pouf, putting in a carrier, pats, squeezes and rubs on the body parts.

communication experiences

It is definitely possible to "talk" to the baby in non-verbal communication: by looking in the eyes or through a loving touch.

Combine and learn words through sensory integration.

For example, learn the word ball when you show a ball, roll it on your body, bounce it and show different types of balls in size and color.

Baby language, gibberish and the use of facial expressions also make communication with the baby particularly enjoyable and educational as well.

It is important to note that each baby has different developmental potential, as well as different strengths and weaknesses.

Since you know him best, create an accurate developmental environment for him and have your hand on the pulse so that you can adjust the exact stimuli that will bring him to realize his potential.

The Jama application was established with the aim of responding to mothers of babies between the ages of birth and three, and to gather for them content, activities, tips from experts and videos that will accompany them throughout this challenging period.

All the content in the application "grows" together with the baby and is precisely adapted to the stages of his development, so that the mothers receive only what is relevant to them and interests them at any given moment.

The Jama app is the place for mothers in Israel to meet and get to know other mothers around them, and to create new and exciting friendships in the fascinating journey.
