Bright Tomorrows

A baby’s brain is a remarkable little creature forming more than a million neural connections every second when activated. Babies learn through spending time with their parents and other special people in their life. We’ve created Bobbie to show us all the emotions, thoughts and responses that happen in a child’s brain when a baby experiences meaningful moments. These meaningful moments, especially if they occur early in a child’s life and often, build strong brains, providing a strong foundation for their life.

Download the Bright Tomorrows app today to receive access to over 1000 meaningful moments and tips to help build young brains.

Also, be sure to check out these other excellent resources…
