Play

Every baby loves to cause reactions, make a mess and experiment with different tastes, textures and sounds. Having the appropriate toys on hand will help you to encourage this desire to play, so that they grow, learn and develop to be the best they can be!

Bouncers and Rockers

Baby Bjorn Bouncer Bliss

What is it? A lightweight well made baby bouncer

Why do I recommend it? I like the simplicity of this reliably well made baby bouncer. It is lightweight and easy to move around the house. I also prefer a baby bouncer to an automated swing as bouncers allow baby to learn to cause a rocking movement themselves that is more natural, fun and also stimulates motor skills.
