This game is great for strengthening the emotional bond between you and your little one. Hold you baby in front of a mirror and start by making small movements – like sticking your tongue out or opening your mouth in a wide grin. You have to be patient, but eventually your baby will try and copy what you’re doing. As your baby gets older, you can try larger body movements with your head or hands and arms.
