Infant activity gear can be simple or come with bells and whistles. Determining which features will be most useful to you and Baby will guide you to the best choices.
Babies rest on their backs or stomachs on these colorful, interactive mats, most of which feature mirrors, rattles, plush toys, music, and/or lights. Some even include one or two overhead beams on which to hang toys. These gyms and mats are perfect for tummy time or to stimulate Babyís senses.
Baby swings range greatly in size, price, and features. Simple models offer one swinging style, while others can feature five or more motions, as well as sound options and an activity bar. Some small swings are portable.
Bike trailers are enclosed seats that attach to the back of a standard adult bicycle and allow you to pull one or two children behind it. Some bike trailers can even transform into a stroller. Child bike seats come in two main designs: those that affix behind the adult seat and those that attach to the handlebar stem.
Infant positioners can provide different kinds of support. Some help newborns during tummy time, when babies lie on their stomachs and work on developing their neck and arm muscles. Other positioners cradle babies in a reclined position, while a third type helps them sit up.
Bouncers or bouncy seats often come in a variety of patterns, sizes, and themes. In addition to bouncing, some seats gently vibrate, which can be soothing to an infant. Bouncers may also include activity bars, lights, sound, and/or music.
A child harness comprises soft adjustable cloth straps that wrap around your childís torso and shoulders; they connect to a strap that attaches to the parentís wrist. On some, the child portion of the harness includes a backpack that can also be used on its own when the parentís strap is removed.
Baby jumpers are available in two main designs: a stationary activity center with springs and support posts, and a stationary activity jumper with a suspended seat. Some jumpers come with built-in activity bars, while others are intended just for jumping. Note: Jumpers that attach to a doorframe are not considered safe for any child.
Also known as playpens and pack Ďn plays, playards are contained spaces for playing or napping. There come with fixed dimensions or in adjustable versions. The latter are more fence-like, affording parents the flexibility to create a designated play circle, section off a portion of a large room, or keep a child out of certain areas.
Shopping cart covers may include padding, toy hooks, storage pockets, and/or a safety harness. All shopping cart covers are washable, but the padding of some may make them harder to stash in your purse than less bulky options.
Seated baby walkers feature caster wheels, an activity tray, and a fabric or plastic seat that allows Babyís legs to reach the ground and scoot around the room. Upright walkers may be made out of plastic or wood and encourage the child to push them forward, often through some form of positive reinforcement (such as silly noises or lights).
Before you buy any infant gear, keep in mind the pieceís safety, space requirements, versatility, portability, ease of cleaning, and look. And consider keeping your receipt in case junior isnít a fan of your choice.
Think about the various activities a piece of gear offers. In general, the more activities = more chances for you to grab a bite or take a shower.
That massive multifunctional activity center might keep Baby busy. But if youíre hoping to take it to Grandmaís house, make sure you donít mind lugging it around.
Some toys require very little space while others, like swings, take up larger areas. Make sure you have enough room for the object wherever you plan to use it.
Playing isnít always neat. Check the product to see which parts are washable, cleanable, and/or easy to disinfect.
Make sure that the gear is safe for your child (no sharp edges or small pieces) and that youíre using it away from potential hazards, such as outlets, curtain cords, and stairs.
Since infant activity gear is geared for, well, infants, it can be hard to find pieces that are aesthetically pleasing to parents. While you may cringe at the colorful plastic behemoth taking up residence in your living room, if it gives you 5 or 10 minutes to eat dinner without a baby in your arms, it may be a worthwhile trade.
It is hard to know if your child will like that swing or bouncy seat until he actually tries it out. If you canít preview first or borrow from a friend, be sure to keep your receipts. Theyíll come in handy if your babe refuses to use the walker or cries every time you put her in the swing.
