Do you do anything educational with your bub and if so, what?
I just read to DS and do a couple of sign language signs but that's about it and I'm thinking maybe I should start doing extra stuff to stimulate his little mind!

I believe the most stimulating thing you can do for your baby is talk to them. Babies love to hear their loved ones' voices and it's the best way for them to learn how to speak.

Thanks for those suggestions, I really need to do more singing action songs but need to relearn them from my own childhood!

You are your baby's favourite educational toy.
Facial expressions, singing, dancing, reading, talking for the baby is all a young one needs.
Definitely no educational videos/TV!
All infant brain research science points that the simplest, natural interractions are what the developing brain craves.
I highly recommend "Bright from the Start" book, there are suggestions you are looking for for several age brackets within the birth to 3 yo range.
P.S. you can make up the songs, as you go about your everyday stuff.
E.g. Changing the nappy, we are so happy, when nappy goes on, mum will cook some corn, corn my baby'll eat, for lots of smarts and wit!

Have you tried the local library's toddler time?
I take my (now) 2yr old to ours where they do songs and rhymes and basic shapes and things. It's free and goes for 30 minutes or so.
I really don't think under 1's need much educational stuff. Teach them about the wonders of the world we live in, the beauty of nature, the joy of reading.
Just have fun with them and play and don't make it so educational so young.
