What toy is suitable for newborns and babies aged 0-6 months?

Welcome to motherhood! The first three months of a baby's life are often filled with sleeping, cooing, pooping, and crying.

As your baby turns three, they start to explore the world around them more actively. For infants between 3 to 6 months old, it's crucial to engage in activities that stimulate their senses, support physical development, and foster a strong bond with parents or caregivers.

Stimulating your child's brain during this time and providing situations where they can explore helps them learn and connect with their environment. Never go overboard with toys. Engaging with your little one, talking, and singing contribute significantly to their development. Toys play a secondary role when it comes to development. These toys help parents interact with their kids and keep them engaged for longer periods.
