Why do babies need black and white stimulation?
When babies are born, they do not see the world quite like we do as their retina is not yet fully developed. You may have noticed that your baby loves and responds to being close to you and this is because they can only see around 10-12 inches. A baby’s retina at birth can only detect large contrasts between black and white.
Over the next few months your baby’s brain will develop rapidly, which is why it is important to include visual stimulation. Research suggests that black and white contrasting shapes and patterns register the strongest on a baby’s retina which sends stronger signals to their brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development. Your baby’s retina and brain may benefit when providing them with continuous visual sensory stimulation through simple black and white, light, and dark pictures and bold, contrasting shapes and patterns.

These cards are fab, at 3 months old we are still using them, and he is fascinated! They're small enough to put in the changing bag or the pram to take with us for him to be occupied whilst we're out and about!
Theae cards are great! We have used them in so many settings for my little one. We've used them against the wall, with an adult holding them and practicing grip and the little onw holds them! Theyre great for helping focus!
