Why Babies Need Sound
Even before the baby is officially born, a child in the womb can respond to voices, music and even their parent’s voices. It really doesn’t matter what kind of music you play or what type of story you read, what matters is that your baby will hear these things and start to develop and like certain sounds. Their sense of sound really does start before they are born. While it’s important to buy them cute toys out on the market, toys with sound for babies makes sense. What you were doing before they were born like reading a book to them or just chatting and singing makes more sense to continue even later down the road.
Since babies love new and different sounds, you want to give them quite a variety. Mostly so they don’t become bored!

Another adorable thing about some of these mobiles is when the child gets a little bit older, you can remove the mobile part and just use the music box to lull that sweet child to sleep.

You probably think buying a video games for a little one is just too much for that age. But more and more companies are coming out with wonderful technology that will help to make baby’s motor skills more advanced.
I love this drum by Leap Frog. Your child can jump, dance, beat the drum and when the baby taps the letters of the alphabet light up:

Your child will probably want to be just like mommy or daddy with their very own laptop. This is so adorable but it teaches motor skills early on.
