Ways to increase your baby’s olfactory sensitivity and memory
The sense of smell is a way for the baby to feel the surrounding environment. The ability to smell is related to the taste stored in the brain. Training the baby’s sense of smell is also a good way to enhance your baby’s memory. Babies can distinguish different smells accurately and avoid bad smells. To strengthen your baby’s ability to smell, you can use the following methods to train.
Smell baby supplies
When you bathe your baby, let him smell the smell of the shower gel, smell the new clothes, and smell the urine in the diapers, as well as small blankets, toys, etc.
These can stimulate the baby’s smell development and consolidate your baby’s impression of taste.
Smell the food
Let your baby smell apples, bananas, complementary foods, etc., attract your baby’s interest and prepare for weaning. Usually, you can also let your baby smell the vinegar, soy sauce, wine and other condiments, and let your baby feel a variety of different smells.
Smell the flowers
Bring your baby outdoors to smell the smell of various flowers, or plant some safe flowers and plants at home, so that your baby will have the opportunity to touch some fresh flowers. But be careful not to let your baby smell strong aromas, such as perfumes, so as not to affect the baby’s health. In addition, if the baby is allergic to pollen, it is not suitable to plant flowers and plants in the home.
Feel the breath of nature
After raining,, there will be a smell of dirt in the air, and the fragrance of grass will appear after cutting the grass. In order to let the baby know more new smells, the mother can take the baby out, go to the woods, lake, etc. and breathe.
When babies are trained to smell, the mother can tell the baby what the taste is, which can make the baby’s memory of the taste deeper and longer.
