    hiya, sorry to jump in but u mummies are best people to ask..

    seems a bit hard to believe that some the toys available for babies (they say newborn) are suitable for newborns? can we really give em hard plastic like those plasticy link things? thank u :kiss:

    When they're very newborn, they won't be interested in many toys at all. But by the time they're a couple months and interested, the plastic toys are fine. We have a mix of plastic ones and soft ones.

    yep i agree, hard toys are good once they get interested in things because they can grip them :)

    as newborns i found they tend to stare at colours etc, harriet used to lay in her cot for about an hour just looking at her toys and sometimes she would reach out to touch them!! x

    when they are a tad older you make sure they arent in their crib or anywhere where they can roll on them. but they are fine for them to play with!

    They don't need toys until they're about 3 months old. Newborns only want food and rest and some socialization. About 1-2 months, they'll want to start looking at contrasting colors and shapes, but they do not need to physically touch toys.. they can't grasp anything.
