High-contrast cards are a great tool to:
Stimulate the development of the optic nerve, encouraging cognitive development.
Boost infants learning and focus.
From birth to four months, infants have an easier time focusing on high-contrast objects because it registers easier on the baby's retina. Then, between three and four months, infants begin to engage in visual tracking. This means they will start to follow objects with their eyes.
Here are some tips for using high-contrast images:
Hold images 8-12 inches from your child's face.
Use images during tummy time to help the baby stay engaged and occupied.
Move cards around to encourage visual tracking.
