My favorite activity for baby
on September 10, 2016
I'll admit - I was a skeptic. I wanted my home after a baby to be as clutter-free as possible, so I was really turned off to anything that could take up a lot of room. Jumperoos, Bumbos, swings, and yes, activity gyms. I reluctantly put this on my registry after many mom friends said I should, thinking I'd never want to take it out.
Boy, was I wrong. I had no idea how wonderful this gym would be for my little one. I first put her on the mat at one month old, and even at that age she could spend up to an hour on it, happy as a clam. Not only are the colors muted and calm, but baby girl just loves it. Now at four months, she's rolling and grabbing, and drooling all over the thing. It's by far her favorite activity as we play on it at least once a day.
Baby toys don't have to be obnoxious in color or volume to be entertaining for them. In fact, I think the subtle rattle sounds of the animals and the squeaking mat provides an opportunity for babies to focus even further on the details.
Best of all, this can be folded up and put away! Hooray for a clutter-free home!
But seriously, I'd recommend this to anyone having a child.
