With the advent of the child I want to give him all the best, all the most necessary, so that he develops fully and his leisure time is colored. Therefore, we, like most other parents, began to buy a variety of toys and gadgets that would occupy the child.
The first such item was a children’s mobile. At first I didn’t understand the meaning of this word, only cars came to mind. Simply put, carousel on the bed. We approached the choice of mobile very seriously, chose a good manufacturer, chose a model.
We had a rotating mobile with three soft toys suspended on it, a music unit, a nightlight and a remote control. The night light was purely symbolic, and therefore we never used it. The music was almost always included – classical, pleasant to the ear, calming. Swing for the baby with electric.
When our daughter was four months old, we bought her an electric rocker. The power was from the batteries. The inclination of the back could be adjusted – from reclining to sitting. The seat was with five-point seat belts. And on the rocker could attach an arc, which were soft toys.
By six months, we purchased a highchair. Due to the fact that we have a small apartment, the kitchen is almost absent, and we don’t have much to turn around in the rooms, we bought a universal chair for feeding. It can be put on any ordinary chair, fasten it with stronger straps, fold it compactly and take it with you wherever you go.
When the baby began to be active, we also acquired a developing mat. But we decided not to limit ourselves to a rug meter by meter with arcs and other blinds, and we bought a huge rug about two meters in size and a half. The bottom layer is waterproof, the top one – with bright animal patterns and colorful background.
What of this useful to us?
The mobile was mastered by two months and was actively used up to the moment when the daughter began to get up in the crib and try to tear the toy from the mobile. At this moment we neatly folded it and he was waiting for his next owner.
Swing with an electric drive, to be honest, my daughter did not understand at first that this was also wary of them. They rarely used them, they could sway for about ten minutes in the mood. Removed them a year, because by weight they did not fit.
We loved the feeding chair very much, sat in it for half a year and until the moment when it stopped climbing into it. Its compact size was enough for us to one and a half years. Left him for the next baby.
A huge rug – developing it turned out to be a little, but it serves us to this day. At first he attracted the attention of the child with his bright drawings and my crawling daughter played it well. It is convenient to take it with you to nature, due to the fact that it is compactly folded.
We tried not to buy a lot of things, we wanted to acquire only the most necessary. We almost got it.
