I am doing a series of videos on developmental activities/toys for infants and newborns. This video features activities for 0-3 month olds. I will do videos on 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, etc. so stay tuned for those videos as well.
Activities/Toys for Ages 0-3 Months: - images or books with high-contract patterns (black/red/white) - bright, varied mobile - unbreakable mirror - rattles - sing and talk to your baby - play music for your baby
Milestones by the end of this age period: - opens and shuts hands -brings hand to mouth - takes swipes at dangling objects with hands - grasps and shakes hand toys -watches face intently - follows moving objects - starts using hands and eyes in coordination - recognizes familiar objects and people at a distance - smiles at the sound of your voice - begins to babble and imitate some sounds - turns head toward direction of sound - begins to develop a social smile
I would recommend having at least one baby carrier. If you're not sure which one you want, you can try them all out for a minimal price before investing $$$ in one that may not work for you! Visit Pax Baby for more info. I did this and found the carrier of my dreams!
Here is a product review for the Sony Baby Call Nursery Monitor. We have been using this monitor for 18 months and have loved it!
Here are the specifics: -900MHz monitor has five sound-sensor activity lights, out-of-range indicator and low-battery warning keep you informed of your baby's actions and the status of your equipment -A belt-clip is included for both receivers, keeping your hands free for other activities -Receivers are water-resistant for use in the bathroom or kitchen -27 channels to greatly minimize interference -Built-in rechargeable battery receiver -Voice activation mode: eliminates most extraneous background noise for clearer transmission
I found this monitor available at Target, Walmart, and Amazon all for under $32. That's a great price for this quality monitor.
