Handy Toys for Your Newborn

Your baby’s first toys are his newly discovered hands. He’ll stare in fascination at his tightly clenched fists.

He is able to focus on any object held about 8 to 15 inches in front of him, and briefly view objects as far away as 3 feet. He will be most attracted to black-and-white pictures and red objects. He enjoys simple images of faces and looking into a mirror.

Safety-approved mobiles, soft infant toys and unbreakable mirrors that attach to the inside of the crib are all good choices for first toys.

Another favorite activity is listening to your voice, especially when you speak in a high voice or sing. A soft rattle or quiet music will also interest him.
