What Is The Better Choice Of The Toys For A Baby In The Period Of 6-9 Months Old?

It is always a challenge to find a proper and useful toy for your child. On the one hand a toy must be useful for the baby’s development, on the other- it must be harmless. To select a correct toy for the baby you know some of his or her peculiarities of thinking and behaviour at stages of his or her development. Let us help you to discover the interesting and beautiful world of baby toys for your child from the ages of 3-6 months old.

In the period of 6-9 month the agility of your baby develops and becomes more complicated. He or she is grabbling freely and even tries to stand up onto two legs. Simultaneously small hand mobility develops: little one tries not just to grip the object in his palm, but also take it with his or her fingers.

Formerly a baby got acquainted with his or her surrounding objects occasionally, now their actions are purposeful. Liberalisation of the little person’s horizon will depend on adults. It is a serious thing for you to show your baby how to play with various toys: how to bang a little drum, how to play the small piano and press the keys, how to handle and ring the ball. At this age babies still chew and play with the rattles and tweeters, but they are also interested in more compound toys like little cars and books with bright pictures (note, always buy books with thick cardboard for small children!).

This age is a special period of time for the parents. Expression “being all eyes” more precisely describes the given situation. Some parents try to restrain the moving activity of their children from considerations of safety or not having enough time to look after them. But you must protect your child only against that is really dangerous to them. Children must learn out from their mistakes.

At the 9 months old the child understands that he or she can play with two toys simultaneously. For example, if they beat one toy on another, a sound will appear (tinkling, rattling) and the child likes these kind of sounds. Now they can play with bricks and pyramidions. In the beginning the child will smash and destroy the built houses and castles, but with time he or she will try to build them on their own. There are special meccanos of flexible plastic for 7-9 month old babies. As a rule, these are open-ended rings, which are linked easily together (though children like to nibble them).

By now a child can play simple games with the adults like “clapping palms”, “cuckoo”, and “let’s fly” etc. Ask your baby to find this or that toy, asking “Where is the rabbit?” If your child does not understand or finds a difficulty in finding the toy, help him “See, the rabbit is here!”
Attention!

1) Toys must not be broken or cracked easily; these contain fine details, which can get into child’s mouth or nose.

2) Plush toys are given to the child only in case if they are easily cleaned.

3) When the child begins to open the surrounding world in his or her room, cover the sharp corners of the furniture with something soft, close up plug sockets, and clear the wires away from the floor.

4) When entering your child’s room, dear parents, do not forget that your child might be standing behind the door.

5) Look carefully after your child and what he or she plays with. Among their “toys” can be not only the safe Mother’s slipper, but crackling plastic sachet (your child certainly will want to try it on).

Any baby store can offer you a wide range of toys, but, dear
parents please see carefully what toys you buy your little one, as not all are good and safe for them.

Shopping For Baby Things – 3 Top Items For Your Baby Shopping List

There are so magazines and books that tell you about all the different items that you will need for your baby. It can be a little overwhelming especially if you do not have anyone to ask and you are relying on the information provided in these books, magazines and television programs. The most important thing that you need to remember is that whatever you need to shop for, you will always be able to find items that are within your price range. The second thing to keep in mind is that there are plenty of items that are completely irrelevant and are not essential.

Here a brief list of three of the most vital items that should be on your shopping list. If you can, it is a good idea to get everything before the baby arrives as you will find that you just won’t have the time or energy to go shopping once you have your newborn.

Buy a Baby Cot

You will need somewhere for your little one to sleep. You can choose to purchase a cot or a cot bed. The first is your basic baby cot which will work out to be much cheaper and the second is able to transform into a bed, once your baby is a little older. This will initially cost you more but could work out to be the best option in the long run.

Buy a Baby Changing Mat

You will want to have something that is comfortable for your baby to lie on while you are changing nappies. It is very important that the mat is waterproof and easy to clean. If you can, you should try and find a multi purpose mat that you can fold up and take with you when you are out and about with your baby. This makes is so much easier if you need to create a mini changing station where ever you happen to be.

Buy a Baby Car Seat

This is one of the most important items that you will ever need. It used to be the norm that a parent could hold their child in their arms while seating in the back seat of a car. Times have indeed changed and it is essential to have a sturdy baby seat that is fitted into your vehicle properly.

There are plenty of other things that need to be placed on your shopping list. Once you have the basic items, you can indulge in the added treats that are not absolutely necessary but are fun to share with baby.

Buying Gift for Your Baby – Shopping List Heaven

It hardly seems long after you’ve bought your 1st copy of Pregnancy & Birth Magazine (to chart the growth from strawberry to melon) before it’s suddenly time to shop till you drop! Armed with a list the envy of any shopaholic, it’s off to John Lewis, Mothercare or your local baby shop for the essential purchases. From muslins to bedding, from prams (Mammas & Papas or Mclaren?) to the essential ‘take me home’ car seat (Brittax or Maxi?). It’s an exciting baby-rush purchase day and suddenly you realise your ‘melon’ will soon be a baby at home!

You’ve decorated your nursery, bought the Winnie the Pooh cot bed from Mothercare and baby furniture from Ikea, now you just need the other essentials. The best advice for mums to be is to consult mums with babies already, learning from their experience!

They will be able to tell you what was their best buy and what they bought for their baby, often because it looked good, but they never use! Once you have sought advice then buy a magazine, Pregnancy and Birth and Prima Baby were my favorite.

The most exciting purchase during your pregnancy is often the pram. It’s something you will have for at least 2 years and reflects your personality! Always think about your circumstances before buying your pram; do you live in a home with no hall, do you live in a town house, how big is the boot of your car, and will you get fed up with the trendy candy stripe?

Try to ‘think practical’- not always easy at 6+months pregnant. Once you have chosen your 3 in 1/travel system/front facing pram the rest of the list seems less daunting! Mothercare and John Lewis are just two of the stores that have advisers if you like the personal touch.

You will need everything from muslin squares to nipple cream. Don’t forget to decide how to announce the birth of your baby too! When finished go sit somewhere for a well deserved fruit smoothie, don’t worry not long till it will be champagne!
