Baby's 1st Year Videos: Baby's Development - Smell, Taste, Hearing, Sight and Touch

The five senses are your newborns gateway into his new world. Using his sense of smell, taset, sight, hearing and touch, helps him gather information about what's going on around him.

The most appealing sight to a newborn is a face -- especially his mother's, father's or siblings. Look into your baby's eyes as you diaper, hold and feed him. Your baby also has an extremely sensitive sense of touch. Your baby is comforted, and more active, alert and responsive when he is massaged.
