  • There's really not much exciting stuff out there until the 6 month range...I've been looking too.

  • things that are to big to fit in the mouth and are hard but not to hard to hurt them. mine is teething so for her anything she can chew on.

  • soft books... and only give three- five toys a day and change the ones he/she doesn't pay much attention to daily. Also, the library is great for programs with stories, play and puppets that my 6 mo old loves, also park system programs and museum programs. I also get 5-7 books out from the library weekly and we read him 1-2 different books daily... again repeating the ones he responds to and change the one he doesn't seem to like as much.
    My baby also really loves people so I'll go to the park and put a blanket on the ground for us to play. He loves watching the kids play and I like talking with other mothers/fathers/nannies.
