Children conquer the world through play. Through play, babies and toddlers take hold of their bodies and learn about their environment. Toys can be stimulating and supportive. But when does play begin and which are the most suitable baby toys?
The first play: functional play
The world is experienced by the infant through touch for the first time. First their own hands, then their feet, the faces of nearby people and soon also objects that are offered. As soon as the child has explored its hands to the extent that it can grasp objects, the first game begins: functional play, also called practice play.
No sophisticated toys are needed for this. A wide variety of objects are suitable as toys for exploration and play. They should be made of natural and different materials to promote the sense of touch appropriately. The colours should also be natural, not too bright, to encourage the sense of sight and not overstimulate it. And of course, the toys should not be a source of danger for the child. Cloths made of wool, silk or cotton, wooden building blocks, but also a simple wooden spoon are excellent toys for the first play and also for stimulating hand-eye coordination;
The beautiful wooden toys from Grimms, such as the rattle fish, rattles, baby roller, grasping toy and bead ring, are also suitable as toys at this time. But smaller cuddly toys can also be pleasant to grasp.
Baby food - one of the most important topics already during pregnancy and as soon as educators start to deal with the topic of "having a baby"!
Do we want to and can we breastfeed? If so, for how long? Is there such a thing as too long? And if no, which baby food, which replacement milk is suitable and good from the beginning? Will I have enough breast milk? What to do if not? And how do we get the baby used to solid food? Do we give a milk bottle or not? And what is this baby-led weaning all about? All these and many more questions keep parents busy. In addition, there are endless advice books and fancy-sounding methods. And yet, here too, it is important to find your very own way that feels good and right for both child and parents.
In this context, we fully support the range of baby food from the manufacturer Holle. For the production of the organic baby food in Demeter quality, chemical processing agents and preservatives are dispensed with without compromise. Holle milk foods have been developed along the lines of mother's milk and therefore offer a good alternative for feeding your baby from birth. And Holle also offers a healthy selection of baby porridges, such as cereal-fruit porridge or milk-cereal porridge, for complementary feeding from around 5 months of age.
