Buying toys [R]1 month, 3 weeks agoWaterBearDontMind posted submission on BabyBumps.
Aug. 26, 2019
I’m 34w5 and I’m wondering whether I should start buying play gyms and toys now? Or should I wait until after birth? I have all of the basics like a crib, nappies, wipes, dummies, gauze blanket/towels etc but just been holding off on buying toys. Also if you have any suggestions on what toys newborns like to play with, I would appreciate it greatly!
Aug. 26, 2019
There is no rush to buy toys as others have said. Tummy time should begin at birth and you could try to get toys that will hold LO’s attention in that position before they learn to reach for things:
- B&W books like this one
- A mirror that can be propped vertically at infant eye level
- A tummytime pillow in the same shape as Boppy but smaller, goes under newborn armpits
Next up would be a playard (the Kick n Play Piano one was super popular in our Bumper group) to hang things overhead that they’ll eventually bat at or kick. The Manhattan Toys with lots of strings or loops are great first toys to grasp. You might also like some plastic chain links, which can be toys/teethers on their own at first and graduate to tools for tethering toys in the stroller/car seat.
Need Teething Toy Like Oball? [R]6 months agobinderclips posted submission on BabyBumps.
April 16, 2019
Daughter is 3.5 months old and loves her oball. However, she might be starting to teeth and has been chewing whatever she can figure out to put in her mouth. She gets really, really angry when she tries to chew on the oball and it doesn't go into her mouth. Does anyone have a suggestion for something to try? She hasn't quite figured out how to maneuver other teething things into her mouth yet and a lot of them seem too big or too heavy for her at the moment. The oball is super light and easy to grab so it's her favourite.
What games/activities do you all do with your infants? [R]1 year, 1 month agosaf621 posted submission on beyondthebump.

My daughter is 13 weeks old and a bad napper. I have no idea what do to to entertain her ALL day, especially when she still isn’t interested in toys, and will only be happy developing skills like rolling/grasping for a few minutes before she’s had enough. Help!
Sept. 6, 2018
Have you heard of the wonder weeks app/book? It’s a couple dollars to buy the app, but it talks about all the different developmental stages the baby goes through until about 2 years old and different activities to do with them to help them develop those skills. I don’t know how much faith I put into the aspect of leaps and fussy phases it talks about, but I find the app super helpful when discussing the developmental phases.
Edit to add: at 13 weeks my son loved his mahatten winkle toy. It really helped with his ability to grab things. https://www.amazon.com/Manhattan-Toy-Winkel-Sensory-Teether/dp/B000BNCA4K

My daughter is 5 weeks old, and is spending more time alert and I'm eager to engage with her more. We have zero toys, and I think it's time to get some. I went to the library and got some high contrast board books yesterday and they fascinate her. I went to buybuy baby to get her a toy or two but felt overwhelmed and bailed. What have your little ones liked? How can I play with a tiny baby?

He loves any of the Lamaze stuffed animals since they have bright colors and different textures. We have the monkey, cat, turtle and firefly (favorite is the firefly). He also loves this thing because he can grab it easily and stick it in his mouth.

Meeting cousin’s 1 year old LO and I don’t know how to human [R]1 year, 9 months agoUnicornToots posted submission on AskParents.
Jan. 8, 2018
- I wasn’t sure where to post this. If it needs moved to another sub please point me in the right direction. New to this sub too so I hope I’m not breaking any rules here *
So, yeah. There’s a family function this weekend and I’m meeting my cousin’s little girl, who is 1. I’m not good around kids really, I don’t have a lot of confidence. I don’t know what to say or do which is just really awkward for everyone. Apparently, ‘so, er, got any holidays coming up?’ isn’t appropriate, lol. I’d love to become more confident around younger kids so I’m looking for tips and advice on how to behave around her and what to say. For example, is the peek-a-boo game (hiding your face behind your hands and then ‘appearing’) too babyish? What are some other things I could do, games I could play to encourage her to be comfortable around me?
Jan. 8, 2018
1 year olds are still babies - they can't talk, mostly babble and drool, and they are messy. Some 1-year-olds can walk. Ask the parents what the baby enjoys - some like music, some like peek-a-boo games, some like rattle toys, etc. If they can walk, they may want to practice walking to you if you hold a toy in your hand.
But, again, just talk to the parents and take their lead.
Talk me down from buying new gadgets for my 4 month old? (or don't?) [R]2 years, 4 months agoChaniB posted submission on beyondthebump.
June 14, 2017
My 4 month old has had a super eventful set of weeks, and he's really aware, calm, and curious in a way that he wasn't at all just 2 weeks ago. It has of course kicked me into gear wanting to get him a whole new set of toy things, even though my rational self is saying no no no.
So two questions. (1) Should I get anything? (2) What are your favorite toys for the 4-5 month old age range? I was thinking of getting him a jumper like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XYYC77I?psc=1. He's newly interested in his play may too so I was wondering if there are cool play mat toys I should be looking into.
June 14, 2017
It's only recommended that babies use jumpers for max 15 minutes a day, so I wouldn't buy something that I could only use for that short amount of time. My baby is 5 months old and in the last month I bought the foam puzzle mat pieces that I can arrange on the floor and let her roll around. I propped up a cheap door mirror sideways on the wall so she can look at herself while rolling on the mat, and she loves to stare at herself and laugh. I also have a few different small toys for her. The favorite for the past few weeks has been this one: https://www.amazon.com/Manhattan-Toy-Sensory-Teether-Activity/dp/B000BNCA4K/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1497457560&sr=8-1&keywords=winkel+toy

My 3 month old baby is starting to show more interest in toys. We have a couple hand me down toys/rattles, a playmat, Sophie the giraffe, and tons of books. I'd always thought, eh, she'll just want to play with the tupperware anyway ... but now I feel like it would be nice to add a couple of quality toys.
Any recommendations? I'd prefer a few awesome ones over a tsunami of 8 million fluorescent plastic things. Bonus points for something with a bit of longevity that will still be interesting to her 6 months from now.
March 23, 2017
I love the Skwish, but I like the Winkel a little more because at that age they're gnawing on toys a lot and I was more comfortable throwing the Winkel in the dishwasher.*
We don't have a regular O Ball, but someone gave us an O Ball Car which was also a hit. The car is good for a little older, but I think if I didn't already have so many stinking toys around the house then I'd get the regular O Ball as well because the car is a little bottom heavy and harder to manipulate when they're first starting out. It does grow a lot though and my 2 year old still plays with it with his other cars.
*I'm not generally a germaphobe, but when they're sticking everything in their mouths I do wash their toys more often.
Baby frustrated by putting things in mouth? [R]3 years agoaslikeanarnian posted submission on beyondthebump.
Oct. 15, 2016
My daughter is 3.5 months old (just about 16 weeks) and she is just starting to grab onto things if we put them in her reach. We've tried the Oball and a Lovey and a couple of other things and she immediately brings them to her mouth. However, it seems like she gets frustrated very quickly when she realizes the toy is something she can't suck on (like her pacifier). The Oball especially frustrates her because of all the holes - she tries over and over to put it in her mouth and just starts crying when she realizes she can't. Her favorite thing right now is a wubbanub because she likes to hold/play with her pacifier and this makes it very easy for her to do.
I've tried giving her the Oball while she has all pacifier in her mouth and she seems disinterested in it.
Is this typical? Will she eventually stop trying to suck on all her toys?

Long time reader, first time poster....
When do babies start holding toys to play with them? Baby boy will bat at hanging toys on the play mat, but won't hold rattles or soft toys. He actually barely looks at them when you shake them for him. He's almost three months. I have no idea what is appropriate. Any thoughts?

Here's my .02 about things that my son liked at that age:
- this bendy ball thing
- soft stacking blocks
- stacking cups
- vtech battery powered ball (warning - it can get annoying)
- stacking toy (and he still plays with it at nearly 11 months)
And like others have recommended, anything that is squishy, squeezy, makes sounds, etc. He was also fascinated with things like an empty water bottle, a dead cell phone or remote (with batteries removed), etc. The musical tables are great as well as exersaucers!
Edit to add: besides the exesaucer, he still plays with most of these toys!
What do you/did you do with your 3.5 month old? [R]4 years, 4 months agoJune 16, 2015
She's on the activity mat a lot truthfully. We hold her on the couch when she is done eating and we talk to the TV but I'm not 100 percent set on the TV so we only do that for maybe 5 or 10 minutes. She sleeps in the swing and doesn't much hang out in it because she thinks it's sleepy time and gets fussy. The activity mat is our main thing but I feel she gets bored. I know I do sitting there hours on end talking baby talk and leaning over the mat. She has little stuffed animals but she can't grasp things yet and she's shown no interest in light up toys. Anyone have ideas as to what to do?
June 17, 2015
If she's having trouble grasping, try this — even if she can't totally grasp yet, the loops here will give her some assistance so she can move it around and practice holding it. Worked great for our 2.5 month old, who now grasps other toys well.
I need help buying things for my baby girl! [R]4 years, 9 months agoJan. 9, 2015
Here's the deal, my baby girl is due any week now. We, as parents, have bought her everything that she will NEED for a while (clothes, cribs, bottles, etc.), but now I'm looking for things that I think she will LIKE.
So my question to all of you: What are some of the best items that you bought for your baby that they absolutely love? I'm looking for toys, movies, decorations, anything really. I'm super bad at picking things out for babies (this is my first one!), so any insight from the experienced fathers would be appreciated.

I got this for my daughter after our very first daddy-daughter errand day. (She was good - didn't cry and just chilled in the Baby Bjorn while I went shopping, so this was a "reward" - read: it was an excuse for me to buy her a toy.)
She was 2 months old then, 4 months old now... It's consistently been her favorite toy. It has a soft rattle, is easy for her to grip, and apparently tastes pretty good as well.

My husband and I are expecting our first child in April. I really want to start shopping for toys but he keeps teasing me for choosing ones she won't use until she's a year old.
Nov. 30, 2014
Both of my kids started playing with a baby gym at 6 weeks - they loved it. Of course, they'd only play for a few minutes before getting tired at first.
I have loved the toys on this list for my infants, though we never had a tool toy http://mamaot.com/2012/07/09/15-toys-for-babys-first-year/
I also really recommend the winkel - http://www.amazon.com/Manhattan-Toy-Sensory-Teether-Activity/dp/B000BNCA4K - it was the first toy both of my kids picked up. We also have a variety of rattles and stacking cups.

I asked a friend who has a 18month old daughter what she recommended as a first toy. She said her little one loved things she could grab with her tiny fingers, like a little blanket with knots on the edges and a fluffy mouse with a very thin tail. What have you got as the first toy for your LO? Mommas who already have children, what do you recommend?

What on Earth do I tell people a 1mo old wants for Christmas?! [R]5 years, 10 months agoTardisNeedsLibrarian posted submission on beyondthebump.
Dec. 13, 2013
My baby's father (who I am not with) texted me the other day and asked what Ellie wants for Christmas. She's literally ONE MONTH OLD AS OF YESTERDAY. My first thought was, "more boobs to suck on?"
I've got a swing, a bouncer, several playmats, plenty of clothes and diapers and wipes... I even already bought her the Your Baby Can Read program for when she hits 3mos. I really can't think of anything!
Edit: thank you all for your great suggestions!
Dec. 13, 2013
Honestly, I would ditch the Your Baby Can Read program and ask for books for Christmas. Board books are going to be super fun for her to look at with you for months and months. My son loved Peek-a Who? and Baby Danced the Polka (among lots of others) when he was very little.
You could also ask for toys, of course. There aren't many toys that she can "play" with yet, but pretty soon she will be more able to hold things, so maybe something colorful and grippy like this? I mean, you're right that there's not much that she needs right now, but a few good toys and books are totally worth it.
