In a child’s early years, they’re immersed in processes of cognitive thinking, which refers to learning through listening, language, memory, watching, touching, reading and reasoning. Their early babbling sounds soon become words, names, and ultimately, sentences. There are a lot of easy things parents can do to make the most of this important time. To start, singing children’s songs and talking to your baby will calm them and start to help them recognize words and identify their meanings.
Reading to your baby is also an excellent way to help them begin to understand language and sounds. Your tone will help overall comprehension, so be animated when reading or telling a story. The best way to use baby toys to help children develop language skills is by interacting with them and letting them experience the story. This is especially easy to do when you’re reading musical baby books to them. For example, you can sing children’s songs directly to them, as if you were in a conversation. You should also respond to your child when they make sounds—this is another great way to help them develop their language skills.
When you play baby music for your child, this will help them develop a love for music while stimulating their brain development. So pop in those baby CDs and get moving to some fun children’s songs.
In general, the best way to use baby toys is with safety at the forefront of your mind. You know that you need to childproof your house before you first bring them home, but you also have to ensure that all the toys they play with are completely safe. Don’t take anyone else’s word for it—read the directions on the packaging and do research about all the toys they come in contact with. The great things about our baby music toys is that they are all completely safe for babies and toddlers—make sure that’s the case for every toy the play with.
