      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      From about the 27th week, your baby can perceive your voice and other sounds from the external environment. It is beneficial to play, read or sing to him to prompt his development and intelligence. In addition to such sensory stimuli, nutrients are still the most important factor for a healthy development of your baby, in particular, iodine. Do avoid unnecessary stress.
