The Ultimate Guide For Newborn - 12 Months Old
This week's feature will be on toys suitable for newborn babies up to 12 months old!
It is actually never too early to start playing with your child! There are plenty of fun ways to engage your little one that will have important long-term benefits for their physical and mental development.
In the first few months, your baby will appreciate things she can look at or listen to. Her vision will be fuzzy so high contrast patterns and bright colours are the easiest for them to see. Objects that move or produce a soft sound will also interest them.
The following are recommended toys that will interest your little tot from newborn to 12 months old.
Hand-held toys: Their nearsightedness makes them appreciate anything you can that moves in front of them, preferably with a gentle sound.
Mobile: A mobile can add a new dimension to a baby's horizontal view of life. Look for ones with high-contrast colors and patterns. Many babies are particularly fond of mobiles that play music. For safety's sake, keep the mobile out of your baby's reach. Hang one from the ceiling!

Soft books / Cot Bumper with high-contrast patterns: Soft books with easy-to-see patterns or decorations are designed just for babies. Lie down next to her so she can watch you turn the pages as you read aloud to her – even at this age it pays off.
Sensory toys: A soft toy that trills or tweets when pressed will please a baby for months to come. The accidental squeaks will also help her become aware of what her hand is doing.
Sock and wrist rattles: Attach a soft rattle to your baby's wrist or ankle, or warm her feet with socks that have built-in rattles to provide long moments of entertainment as she experiments with new sounds she can make herself.
