What my 30 years of working with babies has taught me.

What working with babies for 30 years has taught me.

By Midge Cox

A simple yet profound insight. 

If working in early childhood development for 30 years has taught me one thing it is this: babies who are having fun are growing smarter because pleasurable sensory experiences are what connect neurons in the brain. It is a simple yet profound premise. That very moment you see your babies face light up with joy and excitement, his brain is making countless neurological and synaptic connections. With each giggle, each smile, each moment of lighting up – his brain is literally expanding in countless ways. My vision and purpose is to create a community center to help very young children increase their brain development through fun activities! A place where mothers (and fathers– lets not forget dad!) can come and learn and most importantly, directly participate in their child’s early cognitive development. I welcome you to read more about what our class offerings are and get in touch with me if you have any questions. Every baby is born with the same billion neurons as the next baby. Brainy Baby & Beyond is here to insure they all get an equal chance to develop into the vibrant little human beings they came here to be. 

With Love,

Contact with your baby activates your baby’s parasympathetic nervous system – that switches off stress; enhances digestion, healing and growth, and imprints calm and connection.

I’ve worked with so many babies and young children, along with their parents, over the years…mostly with moms. But I have to say when dad’s were involved and roughhousing with their child, sometimes simultaneously the child’s face would light up as the mom’s face was frightened. Maybe dad was doing something a bit too rough with his little one… of course safety comes first and you need to be careful but I love when fathers are a little more active and they know instinctively what their child likes! We can all learn from the dads who do facilitate happiness with some kind of movement with their child. With all of my knowledge I have of the young brain and what we can do to stimulate the wiring between neurons, it is downright exciting to offer a place where children can have fun! And parents can be empowered by their involvement with their child that will directly lead to increased cognitive development.


A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.
