Being A New Parent Is No Easy Task

Do you feel as if you’re not doing enough to help your baby navigate the world?

Are you making things up as you go along?

Do you feel overwhelmed and stressed out as you roam the web seeking advice?

Or maybe you feel there’s not enough hours in the day to be both a new parent AND learn how to be a better one.

If any of this applies to you, I’d like to assure you of two things:

  1. You’re NOT alone
  2. You CAN learn how to help your baby thrive, in less than 10 minutes per day

Hi, I'm Virginia

I am also a new parent.

And, as I prepared for my baby’s arrival, I had this nagging fear.

I worried that once my baby was born, I would not understand her needs and would not know how to connect.

I was so busy with work and preparing for her arrival that there was no time for me to learn the role I’d be taking on as a new mom.

I Googled for hours searching for solutions.

But the more I searched, the more confused I felt. There seemed to be competing information at every turn.

So, I turned to online forums to seek the advice of other moms.

You know what I found?

There were SO many other parents who felt exactly like I did.

But I also uncovered something that could help us all.

The Magic of Black and White

When babies are newborns, their vision is developing. At first, they can only focus on high-contrast images.

Their eyes have the potential to see, but the eye-mind connection is not yet fully established.

Here’s the amazing part: you can help them solidify that connection.

When you spend a short time each day showing your baby high-contrast flashcards, it stimulates their visual nerves.

It improves their eye’s ability to track, and it improves their focus.

It’s also a fantastic way to engage with your newborn and create a lasting bond. Plus, you’re starting to communicate with them before they can even speak.

And it’s so simple, you can do it anytime, anywhere.

All this from a flashcard!

No fancy gadgets, no batteries, and no user manual required.

A World of Learning and Discovery

Using high-contrast flashcards with your baby is a fantastic way to stimulate their developing brain.

But how do you use them appropriately?

How much time should you spend?

And – most importantly – how can you continue to support brain development throughout the first year of life?

As an exhausted new parent, you don’t want to keep searching for answers. You don’t want to have to come up with new ideas on your own.

That’s why I created the Baby is Brilliant Membership Program.
