I think my daughter has a favorite toy and it’s like no other. Maybe it’s the colors or the sounds that draw her attention. It’s made of plastic, rectangular in shape and quite useful. Can you guess what it is?
Baby wipes! Yes, my 4 month old daughter likes baby wipes.Well, not the actual wipes but the container. I discovered it a few weeks ago while changing her diapers. I had wanted to help her turn her neck to the left so I grabbed it, squeezed it to grab her attention and placed it on her left side. To my surprise, she gradually turned to that side.
This toy has become part of tummy times and diaper changes. It has also been useful in calming her down. When she’s fussy I would lay her down on the changing table and wave it at her. Almost instantly it catches her eye and she stops crying.
Interestingly, this toy also helped her make three of her firsts.A few weeks ago, this plastic container was the first thing she excitedly reached for during her tummy time.
And just several days ago, we used it to encourage her to rollover.Amazingly, it worked!
I don’t know exactly why she prefers this toy over others but I’m just happy she has giggles 😉
P.S. Giggles is not recommended as a toy. The author did not receive any compensation for mentioning it in this post.
