This Little Cow 

A toe touching game like this little piggy, start with the big toe.

This little cow eats grass

This little cow eats hay

This little cow drinks water

This little cow moos all day

This little cow does nothing, but lies around all day.

We’ll chase her, we’ll chase her, and we’ll chase her away! (tickle little toe and run up under baby’s arm)

Touching games are a fun way to nurture a loving connection with your baby.  Try to make diapering time a delightful time to connect and laugh by including a game or song. Babies will grow to look forward to the changing table when they know a fun little game is part of the routine. If you have a special game that you play with your baby, please share with us.
