Your newborn baby can only see in Black and White and shades of grey.
The nerve cells in their retina and brain that control vision are not fully developed yet.
To help in the development of the eye and nervous system of your newborn baby you can introduce simple Black and White images.
I have designed this Moses basket soft book together with graphic designer Lotte Lessware.
Lotte and her husband have four children and live in the Cotswolds where she hand makes each individual book in her studio.
In my 29 years experience in working with newborns and teaching them to settle to sleep happily ,black and white books have been essential. They not only encourage visual development but are an important tool to aid self soothing.
Newborns will "read themselves to sleep"
