From the Bright Horizons - Citibank Family Center in Sioux Falls, SD comes this exploration of nature in their infant room. They took many walks to gather nature items like rocks, pinecones, sticks, pine needles, etc. Once the class was done exploring, they displayed the items in burlap fabric from the ceiling in their room.
Here’s an idea from an infant teacher at the Superior Children’s Center, a Bright Horizons center in Tyler, TX. She created a kicking wall for their younger infants. Of course they love to kick and feel the leaves! This idea can also be used with many materials, such as bubble wrap, paint, or yarn.

Early Exposure to Gluten May Help Babies Avoid Celiac Risk: Study
Encouraging Your Baby's Babbling May Speed Language Development - "When parents listened and responded to a baby's babbling, infants began to form complex sounds. The babies whose parents responded to babbling also started using language more quickly, according to the study published recently in the journal Infancy."
Swedish experts say introducing gluten while breast feeding can prevent future sensitivity.
