The list author says: "We had a rough time of it with our daughter for the first 6 weeks or so. She had some feeding issues that took us a while to get resolved, and before we figured out what was going on, life was difficult for everyone. She is still quite particular about things, but now we are better equipped to handle her. Here are the things we needed to get through those early weeks (and beyond)"

"This was great when our daughter was first learning to hold things and put them in her mouth, but her coordination wasn't perfect yet. Lots of places to grab easily, and the odds of getting part of it in her mouth was very high. It's also a good height for tummy time chewing."
