Infants will teach you how to take care of them. Listen for their cues. If something you are doing isn't working, you will know.
As far as teaching babies, they are learning all the time. What I can do (after meeting their needs) is provide challenging toys, talk to them about what I'm doing, and play with them.
After an extensive search I have found some great resources to use with infants:
This is a free resource! I have printed out each week, put it in sheet protectors in a binder, then hang the appropriate week on the wall for easy reference.
Each of the 52 cards in this Infant/Toddler Photo Activity Library has a photograph of every day things. The back of each photo card has a vocabulary list, suggested activities for each photograph, the American Sign Language sign related to the image, and a recommended children's book. Very easy to expand with or use as a stand alone.
Playtime Devotions makes an excellent Bible supplement to any infant/toddler program with these fun, simple devotions based on well-known games and songs and lay a sound spiritual foundation for the future.
Brightly Beaming Baby
This is another free resource! Includes 20 lesson plans. There are 2 lessons for each month of a baby's life from 3 months to 12 months of age. You can spend approximately 2 weeks on each lesson plan with your baby. The lessons are geared to a baby's development as he/she progresses through the first year of life.
