You are back home with your little angel and the whole house is filled with her laughter. You admire and adore her. Want to give her the best of everything in the world. Below are some toys for babies from 0 to 6 months old.
The first six months are very important for your little angels development. She has come to a new environment and she has just started exploring it. Trying to understand everything around her, your facial expressions, your voice, sounds around her, everything. The vision is getting developed. Your angel will be able to see things around her which are not more than, lets say 30 to 40 cms. But what about sound, if you realize or would have noticed, her hearing is quite developed. She is able to turn her head towards the sound trying to figure out what is making that sound?
Another important point if you have noticed about your little angel, she tries to grab whatever is near to her. What does this means? This means that babies are born with a instinct to grasp everything.
Why are we discussing this? The reason is simple. A toy should be able to help your baby develop these senses better.
Let’s take an example of Baby Rattles. They are one of the best baby toys for 0 to 6 months old. We all parents have given this to our babies. Have we ever thought how it helps your little angels development. First the bright color attracts her. Then she will try to it, improving her grasping reflex. Then she will try to pull it near to her face. This helps her in improving her hand-to-eye coordination.
So essentially the toy at this stage should be able to improve your child’s Hand-to-Eye coordination, Perception, Sensorimotor Skills and Cause and Effect and Object performance. Well these are terms used by researchers on this topic and we are not really an expert on that, but just to mention these are called as cognitive concept.
So it is important to look out for these features while selecting toys for your little angel at this age.
- Bright Colours
- Toys which can help your baby reach out and stretch ex baby gym
- Moving toys which can help them with eye-neck, hand-eye coordination
We all know that almost every toy we give to our little ones at this age will go to her mouth and hence it is very important that the toys are clean, safe and non toxic.
