Neutral colours, soft pastels and solid colours are all trending page after page. Now, these designs that have been intricately and cleverly created may appeal to your homeโ€™s interior dรฉcor and personal preferences and ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ to ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ข ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ, however is there any thought going into your babyโ€™s development?โฃ

Those trendy pastel coloured ones you now see in the stores 2 years after we launched ours, may be more visually appealing to you and fit in better with your home styling ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฃ but they actually make very little sense in view of your baby's development.โฃ
โฃ
In fact, from the moment your baby is born, they are constantly absorbing information around them in which visual stimuli is an essential part to this process. A babyโ€™s retina may not be fully formed at birth, but from the moment they open their eyes their brain begins to absorb this information like a sponge. โฃ

According to many doctors who specialise in child development, play and parenting, 80% of the information their brain receives at this early age ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ณ ๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ. This puts a high emphasis on visual stimulation.โฃ

By surrounding your newborn with strong visual stimuli, you can spur on their mental development. The trick is achieving a high level of ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ด. โฃ
โฃ
To achieve this high level, research has found that high contrast pictures and colour contrasts encourage babies to focus, while in turn stimulate cognitive development.โฃ

One of the most stimulating contrasts is in fact BLACK and WHITE. It was found that babies looked twice as long at the patterned black and white pictures as they did to solid-coloured ones. This is because these high contrasts register powerfully on a babyโ€™s retina and send the strongest visual signals to the brain โ€“ stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster development.โฃ
