Give Safe Toys to Your Baby

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

Do not give your baby toys that he
can choke on. Make sure toys do not
have small, detachable parts like buttons or loose tufts of cotton or material.
These things can become more
weakly attached over time and become
a choking hazard. Toys or items small
enough to place in his mouth are not safe. Toys with strings or ties can
cause problems. Babies can get tangled in mobiles that are hung too close
to them.

Here are some suggestions for safe toys and play activities:

  • The best toy you can give your three-month-old baby is a plastic or
    rubber ring. Watch as he explores the ring with his hands and mouth.
  • Lay your baby on his tummy and roll a brightly colored ball from side
    to side in front of him.
  • Ring a bell or squeeze a squeaky toy while your baby is watching.
  • Put some brightly colored toys in your baby’s bath.
  • Blow liquid bubbles with a wand while holding your baby. He will love
    to watch the bubbles as they float by.
