    You've had some great suggestions already.

    With my DS2 (12 weeks) I take him to all of DS1 activities. While he doesn't really participate he gets to see what's going on. I also spend some time each day with the him looking directly at me. I mimic his facial expressions and sounds. I spend a lot of time talking to him and explaining what I'm doing. We do lots of reading, but that's mainly because DS1 loves reading 😃

    DS is 12wks and I sit next to him on his play mat and talk or sing to him. He likes 'interactive' songs like heads, shoulders, knees and toes where I tickle him on his head, shoulders etc as I sing. Lots of eye contact on my lap or in his rocker watching me in the kitchen. 3yo DD likes to chatter and make noises to him which he seems to think it great (he smiles at her a lot!).

    I also show him toys and mirrored objects, do tummy time or he just sits with me and watched the world go by.

    It's hard at this age as they're not really doing much.
