Babies love to be wriggly. It won’t take long for your little one to take pleasure in movements such as jumping, bouncing about and rocking away. It is an excellent idea to try and encourage your babies’ natural need to move around– not only will this help them to develop their bodies, but they will start to link activity with fun, which is a nice link to make.
A tried, tested and recommended piece of activity apparatus is the Fisher Price Kick and Play bouncer which has a great action to soothe and entertain your baby with fun songs and sense games to stimulate your baby’s curiosity. It works on a kind of reward basis in that the curious your baby is the more noises and colours the bouncer reveals.
Baby walkers are also a good investment for stimulating little limbs and curious minds and they have been popular with parents for decades. Some parents prefer their baby to play with stationary centres instead of the more traditional mobile walkers because it looks safer.
The thing with mobile baby walkers though is they help to develop limbs and a sense of adventure. Walkers will normally engage babies for longer periods of time than stationary play centres. Try the VTech First Steps baby walker which is suitable for babies from 6 to 30 months old.
