It is natural for newborn babies to be very curious about what is going on around them.
If you give your newborn safe toys they will help with healthy growth and development and they will also stimulate their minds.
Newborn babies are known to sleep for approximately 14 – 16 hours a day so when they are awake providing them with soft soothing toys will ensure they have hours of enjoyment.
Mobiles are perfect for newborns and they come in many different colours and styles. The movements that mobiles make will intrigue your little one and the music played will relax them.
Mobiles are a great toy because infants are only able to focus on objects between 8 and 14 inches away. So the bright colours and movement the mobiles make will be great entertainment for your little one.
Even though your baby is unable to grasp rattles they will love watching you shake it. Again because of the movements and sounds this will stimulate your babies mind.
Babies are enchanted by the human face so toys such as the Baby Shakespeare peek-A-boo mirror with easy push buttons that play sounds will soon become your little one’s favourite toy. The mirror section of this toy is shatter-proof.
Activity centres and Play Gyms are fantastic for infants and help with their development of the large motor skills as well as their cognitive skills. Newborns can lie on their back and be stimulated by the colours and once they can use there arms and legs they can bat at the toys. Some play gyms have music that plays when the child kicks their legs.
Soft, fabric books are great for you and you’re infant to enjoy together. Not only will it increase the bond between you and your child but they will install a love of books in your child.
Music is also a favourite of children, especially newborns. You don’t even need musical toys all you need is a CD of lullabies that will send your baby into a nice sleep or even up beat music for playtimes.
Toys are great way to assist your child’s development. From birth children are constantly learning and growing in their play environment. Simple toys that create sounds and light with buttons and knobs will help your infant’s cognitive development, logic and problem solving skills once they learn to use there hands and feet to make the toys work.
The best gift you can give your baby is the gift of learning and with some newborn toys it will make learning fun.
