Activity toys
3-6 months

Your older baby starts to be interested in exploring and spends more time awake. Baby mirrors, actvity toys and play gyms will be a joy. Spending more time on the tummy can be challenging but important and tummy time toys will make this experience more enjoyable for your little one.

Your baby will enjoy looking at reflections in a mirror and will start to explore things by putting it in the mouth, stimulating the visual, oral and tactile senses.

 

Tummy time fun

Practising laying on the tummy is important for babies. They develop and strengthen the muscles they need to push up, roll and crawl. You should start practising tummy time early on and gradually give your baby more and more time on their tummy when awake.

To make tummy time more enjoyable try introducing toys your little one can explore while being on the tummy.
