\u201cMy play mat was worth its weight in gold. Both my DC loved lying on it and kicking their legs.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

Your bundle of joy can have an entertaining workout with a multi-sensory baby gym. Providing a soft, snuggly space to kick and stretch, an interactive play mat lets your little one wriggle in comfort and the dangly toys encourage them to reach and grasp, improving their fine motor skills. Not only that, it\u2019s perfect for practising tummy time too, which will aid muscle development.<\/p>

A play gym is not only for the enjoyment of your baby \u2013 it\u2019s also a lifesaver for parents who\u2019ll appreciate its ability to amuse little ones when in need of a short break.<\/p>

With detachable arches, the plush, cloud-shaped base of this play gym from Nuby can be used on its own and is easily cleaned in the washing machine.<\/p>

It includes rattle, squeak and mirror toys and, although it\u2019s not the most colourful playmat on the market, its calming, dreamy tones come into their own in less-energetic moments, making it ideal whether your newborn is in the mood to \u2018exercise\u2019 or relax.<\/p>

\u201cBaby normally seems mesmerised with his spiral toy. I\u2019ve got it wrapped around the car seat handle, which keeps him amused on journeys.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

If you\u2019re in a spin over travel toys, you\u2019ll be heading in the right direction with an activity spiral. Designed to wind securely around the bumper bar of your pushchair, it can also be attached to a cot, carrier or car seat for many months of fun travels.<\/p>

This infant toy from Mamas & Papas will ensure that your newborn has something within reach to explore on trips, however short or long.

This interactive play hub may occasionally slip to one side while you\u2019re out and about, but at least it\u2019s the one toy that won\u2019t get lost along the way.<\/p>

\u201cLamaze does loads of lovely dangly toys that are suitable from birth.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

Your little ankle-biter will have no worries when this cheerful Aussie herbivore is hanging around. Boredom won\u2019t get a look-in thanks to his kaleidoscopic, contrasting markings and tempting textures.<\/p>

Quickly clipped to everything from buggies to baby bags, this multicoloured marsupial squeaks and crinkles, teaching your infant about the concept of cause and effect. And being smaller than many of the toys in Lamaze\u2019s classic range, its price tag is too.<\/p>

Mumsnetters are consistently impressed with the versatility of this brand\u2019s toys and their ability to amuse \u2013 and this quirky koala is no different. The manufacturer is also mindful that everything young babies touch goes into their mouths, which is why this toy\u2019s dangling leaf is there solely for curious gums.<\/p>

Your little ankle-biter will have no worries when this cheerful Aussie herbivore is hanging around. Boredom won\u2019t get a look-in thanks to his kaleidoscopic, contrasting markings and tempting textures.<\/p>

Quickly clipped to everything from buggies to baby bags, this multicoloured marsupial squeaks and crinkles, teaching your infant about the concept of cause and effect. And being smaller than many of the toys in Lamaze\u2019s classic range, its price tag is too.<\/p>

Mumsnetters are consistently impressed with the versatility of this brand\u2019s toys and their ability to amuse \u2013 and this quirky koala is no different. The manufacturer is also mindful that everything young babies touch goes into their mouths, which is why this toy\u2019s dangling leaf is there solely for curious gums.<\/p>

\u201cDS was fascinated by his rainmaker toy at about three months.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

Who would\u2019ve thought that the sound of the Great British weather would be so pleasurable to tiny people? Yet babies are unfailingly captivated by a rainmaker, which mimics the noise of precipitation with the trickling of the coloured beads within. And it\u2019s not only auditory development that this classic toy encourages, either \u2013 it also aids hand-eye coordination.<\/p>

Although designed to be easy to hold, younger babies will need their parents to turn the toy upside-down and set the beads in motion.<\/p>

Your infant will enjoy watching and listening to the subtle, soothing sounds of Hape\u2019s Beaded Raindrops, which comes in either blue or red.<\/p>

Oldies can be goodies and this musical favourite is a marine-inspired case in point. Helping countless babies to doze off over the years, the Fisher-Price Soothe & Glow Seahorse lights up \u2013 along with your baby\u2019s face \u00ad\u2013 and plays soft lullabies and classical music for five minutes when its tummy is squeezed.<\/p>

This cuddly buddy is neither too bright nor too loud to keep your baby awake, and the eight comforting melodies and seaside sounds are mellow enough not to annoy parents \u2013 although having to activate the toy every few minutes for younger babies might.<\/p>

Available in blue or pink and with a machine-washable cover, many Mumsnetters report that their kids still use theirs well beyond their baby days.<\/p>

Kaloo can do no wrong in our sleep-deprived eyes. Their adorable products are not only well-made and beautiful, they\u2019re practical too.<\/p>

It\u2019s clear that a good deal of thought has gone into each one of their super-soft toys \u00ad\u2013 they\u2019re easy for infants to grasp and most can be machine-washed and dried as well.<\/p>

This rabbit comforter is a security blanket and plush bunny in one. We love that a dummy can be attached to one of the four corner knots, so it\u2019s always nearby, plus you can write your baby\u2019s name on the satin ribbon in case it gets mislaid.<\/p>

Although not the cheapest of comforters out there, Kaloo products are elegantly packaged and make chic gifts. This one comes in a square keepsake box and is available in a choice of timeless colours.<\/p>

\u201cTOMY Hide & Squeak Eggs are a cheap classic. They\u2019ve been around for years and babies love them.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

When it comes to baby toys that stand the test of time, this one from TOMY is a popular eggs-ample (forgive us). The half-dozen eggs inside the carton delight and surprise with their funny faces, plus hiding inside each one is a colourful chick that chirps when pressed.<\/p>

A bestselling toy for almost three decades, Hide & Squeak Eggs also incorporates colour matching and shape sorting to develop logic and problem-solving skills. These educational aspects may not be appreciated at this stage, but the great thing about this battery-free toy is that it\u2019ll still be one of your child\u2019s most cherished months and even years down the line.<\/p>

Be aware that your baby may just want to empty the eggs out and noisily bash their shells together, meaning they\u2019ll be strewn all over the living room floor, but the joyous expression on your little one\u2019s face each time they play more than makes up for the daily clear-up. All in all, this is a toy that\u2019s well worth shelling out on.<\/p>

What are the development milestones for a baby during the first six months?<\/h2>

Each baby is different and develops at their own pace, but there are key milestones to watch out for over the first few months of life.<\/p>

0 months<\/h3>

Newborns can initially only focus on objects that are around 20cm in front of them, seeing in black, white and greys in their earliest days. While unable to lift their heads, they can turn them to the side and, at two weeks, their eyes should follow your face. They\u2019re getting used to life outside of the womb and need the opportunity to stretch out of the foetal position. They\u2019ll still need neck support.<\/p>

2 months<\/h3>

Babies will start smiling when spoken to and making cooing sounds. They\u2019ll wave their arms and legs when lying down on their backs and hold their heads up for several seconds when on their fronts. They may grasp your finger and turn their head in response to noises.<\/p>

4 months<\/h3>

When in a sitting position, babies are able to hold their heads steady, without support, and should start reaching for toys. While holding a toy, they will look at it, wave it around and try to chew it. They\u2019re also becoming more vocal at this stage, able to laugh and make high-pitch squeals.<\/p>

6 months<\/h3>

Your baby will start to roll in both directions and sit up with support. They may also get into the crawling position and be capable of grasping a toy using both hands. Playing with their feet while lying on their backs is the norm at this age, as is holding out their hands to be lifted up. They\u2019ll pass an object from one hand to the other and enjoy looking at themselves in a mirror.<\/p>

Do babies really need toys?<\/h2>

While your baby is completely dependent on you and incapable of controlling most of their movements, you\u2019d be forgiven for thinking that toys were simply a waste of money.<\/p>

Be in no doubt, however, that your little one is taking it all in and, even if they\u2019re too young to reach, grab or see clearly, they can still benefit from toys that aid visual stimulation, such as those with high-contrast patterns and pictures.<\/p>

As they grow, activity toys that also appeal to the auditory and tactile senses will come to the fore. Encourage your baby to reach for them and move forward, to assist physical coordination.<\/p>","value":"

“DS在大约三个月大的时候就被他的rainmaker玩具迷住了。”

虽然设计得很容易拿,但年幼的婴儿需要他们的父母把玩具倒置,让珠子动起来。

“DS1有一匹费希尔·普莱斯海马。他工作了一段时间,但在三岁半的时候,他仍然偶尔使用它。”

老歌可以是好东西,这首最受欢迎的音乐就是一个海军陆战队启发的例子。多年来,Fisher Price Solution&Glow海马帮助无数婴儿打瞌睡,当它的肚子被挤压时,它会随着宝宝的脸一起点亮,并播放柔和的摇篮曲和古典音乐五分钟。

这个可爱的小家伙既不太聪明,也不太吵闹,不会让你的宝宝睡不着觉,八首令人安慰的旋律和海边的声音足够柔和,不会让父母感到不安——尽管小宝宝可能每隔几分钟就要启动一次玩具。

10TOMY Toomies隐藏并发出吱吱声的蛋

切蛋

“TOMY Hide&Squeak蛋是一款便宜的经典产品。它们已经存在多年了,宝宝们都喜欢。”

当谈到经得起时间考验的婴儿玩具时,TOMY的这款玩具非常受欢迎(请原谅我们)。纸箱里的半打鸡蛋以其滑稽的面孔让人惊喜不已,加上每个鸡蛋里面都藏着一只五颜六色的小鸡,按下后会发出唧唧喳喳的叫声。

作为近三十年来最畅销的玩具,《隐藏与吱吱蛋》还结合了颜色匹配和形状分类,以培养逻辑和解决问题的能力。在这个阶段,这些教育方面可能不会得到重视,但这款无电池玩具的好处在于,它仍然是孩子最珍惜的几个月甚至几年。

要知道,你的宝宝可能只是想把鸡蛋掏空,然后大声地把蛋壳敲打在一起,这意味着它们会散落在客厅的地板上,但你的孩子每次玩耍时脸上的喜悦表情不仅仅弥补了每天的清理。总而言之,这是一个非常值得一试的玩具。

这三位面容友好的角色有着纹理丰富的肚子,非常耐用,可以轻易地擦拭干净。虽然建议的年龄是三个月以上,但它们可能更适合年龄稍大的婴儿,因为他们可以更舒适地握住摇动器。

虽然布景由狐狸、猫头鹰和刺猬组成,但由于背部凹凸不平,刺猬往往是最受欢迎的。谁知道呢——这些多愁善感的家伙很可能成为未来大师的灵感来源。

婴儿在头六个月的发育里程碑是什么?

每个婴儿都是不同的,并以自己的速度发展,但在生命的最初几个月里,有一些关键的里程碑需要注意。

0个月

新生儿最初只能将注意力集中在他们面前20厘米左右的物体上,在他们最早的时候可以看到黑色、白色和灰色。当他们不能抬起头时,他们可以把他们转向一边,两周后,他们的眼睛应该跟着你的脸。他们已经习惯了子宫外的生活,需要有机会伸展出胎儿的体位。他们仍然需要颈部支撑。

2个月

当和婴儿说话时,婴儿会开始微笑并发出咕咕声。当他们仰卧时,他们会挥动手臂和腿;当他们站在前面时,他们会抬起头几秒钟。他们可能会抓住你的手指,在听到噪音时转动头部。

4个月

当处于坐姿时,婴儿能够在没有支撑的情况下保持头部稳定,并且应该开始伸手去拿玩具。当他们拿着一个玩具时,他们会看着它,挥动它,试着咀嚼它。在这个阶段,他们的声音也变得越来越大,能够大笑和发出高音尖叫。

6个月

您的宝宝将开始向两个方向滚动,并在支撑下坐起来。它们也可能进入爬行位置,能够用双手抓住玩具。在这个年龄,仰卧时用脚玩耍是正常的,伸出手来举起也是如此。他们会把一个物体从一只手传递到另一只手,并且喜欢在镜子里看着自己。

婴儿真的需要玩具吗?

虽然你的宝宝完全依赖你,无法控制他们的大部分动作,但你认为玩具只是浪费钱是可以原谅的。

但毫无疑问,你的孩子正在接受这一切,即使他们太小,够不着、抓不着或看不清楚,他们仍然可以从有助于视觉刺激的玩具中获益,比如那些具有高对比度图案和图片的玩具。

随着它们的成长,同样吸引听觉和触觉的活动玩具将脱颖而出。鼓励你的宝宝去接触它们并向前移动,以帮助身体协调。

我应该什么时候把玩具介绍给我的新生儿?

开始宝宝的学习之旅或开始与他们玩耍都不会太早,这不仅有助于建立亲密关系,也有助于智力和身体的发展——即使他们很小。

虽然婴儿的本能可能存在,但至少要到两个月大的时候,婴儿才会开始发展掌握玩具的技能。只需记住,彩色玩具浪费在最小的新生儿身上,因此,简单的单色玩具是快乐婴儿的最佳选择。

新生儿最好的玩具是什么?

由于其多功能性、便携性和简单性,我们为新生儿选择的最佳玩具是《小小爱的草地日子》双面第一本书. 它在婴儿生命的前几章提供发育支持,从出生到六个月甚至更长时间都是相关的。
