Today’s episode is diving into a question that we received from a listener.
“I have a preemie (32 weeks) and would love to see content on preemies as I know their sensory experience for the first few months of life are quite different and their development is likely going to be off as well.”
Get ready for some tips and tricks that you can implement in infancy, such as support for primitive reflexes, ideas for different sensory experiences, and feeding strategies. We also dive into tips for toddlers as well.
