Between 4 and 7 months, baby is working on sitting independently. If she's still sitting with support, you can encourage her to strengthen her trunk muscles (abs and spine) by putting toys in front of her and encouraging her to reach for them. Once baby can sit without needing to put her hands in front of her (called "tripoding"), she'll be free to use those hands to play with toys and, hopefully, entertain herself for short periods of time (but remember, never leave baby unattended).

This is a good little ride for a baby who can sit up with complete control and is at least very close to crawling. You will need to closely supervise to ensure safety, but the action of rocking back and forth for a baby is their version of a wild roller coaster and the look on his face when he’s riding will have you convinced you’re the best gift-giver in the world.

Preschoolers and kindergartners have longer attention spans than toddlers. Typically they talk a lot and ask a lot of questions. They like to experiment with things and with  their still-emerging physical skills. They like to play with friends—and don’t like to lose! They can take turns—and sharing one toy by two or more children is often possible  for older preschoolers and kindergarteners.
Babies get so cold during their first year of baths. And while there’s nothing cuter than a baby fresh from a bath squirming in a big fluffy towel, baby being unnecessarily chilly for the sake of cuteness just doesn’t settle with us. If you want to keep your baby warm as you dry and dress him, this hooded towel is a great option. It will keep baby’s head warm while dressing the rest of him until you can dry and brush hair or get a hat on him.
A: There is so much controversy around the use of plastic these days. In recent years, we’ve seen how its chemical make-up has had some undesirable effects on our health, not to mention our planet. We highly recommend using silicone-based toys as they are FDA-approved, better for the environment and may be safer and less harsh for your baby’s delicate, growing body.
