Any suggestions for toys and games with 4 month ld baby girl?

I noticed she doesn't like to play by herself much anymore and loves to grab things and put them in her mouth. I have a mmi baby gym - toys hanging over her head, any suggestions for toys in the crib or playpen? When is she gonna crawl, do I need a playpen now?

  • My daughter will be 4 month the 10th and she just got a V-tech rock & crawl ball (I think that is what it is called) and she seems to love it. It will also encourage her to start crawling. As far as the play pin and when she will start crawling it depends on the child. My first daughter started crawling around 6 month. I did not use a play pen because I was never too far from her and there was really nothing she got into. But she also did not like to be along so she always stayed with me. My suggestion would be to wait because some children do not like a play pen at all. I always hated wasting money on items that my daughter never ended up using.

  • When my dd was about 4 months we invested in one of the sit to stand toys - it was the one that goes from belly play - to sit play - to stand play - it has a dancing bear with cymbals and a microphone on it - she still loves that toy at 16 months!

    My dd hated the playpen too - but we had one of the bassinet/playpens so when she outgrew the bassinet I just dumped those playballs that you can get at Walmart or ToysRus into the playpen and she loves it still - in fact at her playgroup meetings, it is one of the hits at the house! lol ...

    Inexpensive toys like balls, large soft cars, a small colorful rug - cloth books - things that are okay to chew on :-) And that should keep your baby busy for quite awhile!

  • THe Fisher Price Fisher-Price Ocean Wondersâ„¢ Soothe & Glow Seahorse is GREAT. I use it everytime Im putting my baby down to sleep for nap or bed time and it really soothe her with the glowing light and the nice music.
