Developmental Baby Toys By Ages and Stages

Newborn to Three Months

Contrary to what you may believe, newborns and very young infants only develop their vision the first few months of their lives. They see only black and white. Things like faces and voices are what attracts and holds their attention. In this stage they start becoming aware of their own bodies so concentrating your attention on their tiny hands and feet is necessary. Some recommended baby toys to be used at this age and stage are:

• Black and white toys

• Play mats

• Rattles

• Mobiles

• Socks and wrist rattles
