If you are working on putting together an environment for infants, focus on the room from the ground up:
1. Think of adding a little cushion bed on the floor provides support for your infant without being so soft that your infant sinks down uncomfortably.
2. Add shelves with equipment provide visual stimulation as your infant eyes what he or she would like to touch. Keep the low shelves stocked with material that your infant can handle and use now at this stage of development.
3. The spaces between the shelves allow your infant to see and hear what is happening in the rest of the room, so that he or she is not isolated.
