As a mother we want our baby to get a head start so that they can reach their fullest potential and we will always love them no matter what. Mothers are known for encouraging their children to be the best version of themselves, but you don’t have to wait until your baby is born to start nurturing their potential. Let’s discuss how to make your baby smarter before birth! Here are 5 ways to make your baby smarter and give your little one a healthy start before he or she enters the world.

Here are the Top 5 ways you can make your baby smarter before birth

  1. Exercise: Light to moderate exercise during pregnancy for just 20 minutes a day will benefit not just you but your baby as well. Studies have shown that prenatal exercise boosts levels of a baby’s brain-derived neurotrophic factors, a chemical that is released during exercise and is associated with better brain function.

  1. Nutrition: Research is suggesting that pregnant women with proper nutrition give their baby’s brain the nutrients it needs to grow and develop to its fullest potential including boosting the baby’s IQ. Try reaching for food that is high in omega 3 fatty acids which will boost your baby’s brain cells.

  1. Pre-Natal Vitamins: While you are pregnant the baby gets most of its nutrition from what you eat and from your reserves stored in your body, which can leave you deficient in nutrients for yourself. This is why it is important to supplement your nutrients with prenatal vitamins. Vitamins from the whole food source are recommended because your body can absorb most of the nutrients much better. DHA and folate are brain boosters that help with your baby’s brain development and have been known to reduce the risk of neural tube defects. Most vitamins contain folic acid, but check to make sure your prenatal supplements contain DHA, if not consider adding an additional supplement with DHA to your regimen.

  1. Eliminate Alcohol and Nicotine: According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, Prenatal exposure to alcohol and nicotine can damage the developing fetus and is the leading preventable cause of birth defects and intellectual and neurodevelopmental disabilities. According to the CDC, there is no safe amount of alcohol, no safe time during conception and pregnancy, and all types of alcohol are equally harmful, including all wines and beer.

Your baby can hear you playing music, talking, and reading which promotes better bonding helps with sound discrimination and builds your baby’s vocabulary. Even though babies can’t talk in utero they can hear and are storing all of the words they hear into their memory bank so that they can use them later on when they start to talk.
