Baby toys. As a first time mama, it can be overwhelming and intimidating to browse infant toys and try to figure out which are best for baby development. To help you out, Kids Activities Blog would like to offer this list of best baby toys for infants 0-6 months old.
Snuggle time with mom & dad. Newborns don’t do much beyond eating, sleeping and making dirty diapers in their first few weeks of life. They call it the 4th trimester for a reason! Skip the noisy rattles and flashing lights and just snuggle with your little one these first few weeks, enjoy this stage!
Sassy Ring O’ Links Rattle Developmental Toy – This cute toy attaches easily to stroller or car seat to help keep your little one busy. Keep the rings hooked all on one ring, or make them in to a chain. Your baby will be entertained by the bright colors and different textures as they reach and hold on to the rings. (affiliate links)
Activity Gym-The activity gym isn’t just fun for babies, but a saving grace for mamas. Find one that has the ability to play music, and your little one will bat away for long enough to give you time to take a shower or get dinner started. Your baby will be stimulated by the music and hanging toys while lying on their back, or use it for much needed tummy time as they strengthen their upper body.
