Simple Activities To Help Babies Explore Their Sense of Smell

Introduce your little one to the world of smells and let them explore their senses!

Babies are born explorers. They start using their senses when they are in the mother’s womb. They know their mother’s scent and new-borns have a heightened sense of smell.

This week you can indulge them in an aroma quest. Introduce your baby to their senses with these cool ideas. Try some scented and unscented items and explore what they like and what disinterests them.

Our sense of smell relies heavily on brain interpretation of the scent. Everyone interprets smells differently, and a smell I find pleasant, such as coffee, may be repulsive to my children.

Be careful not to get the items too close to your babies nose to prevent them from inhaling the items through their nostrils.  It is important to understand that everyone perceives smell differently, so if I like the smell of lavender, someone else may find it uncomfortable. Hence it is important not to push your choice of scent on your child. Let them decide how they feel about the scent.
