How your baby can practice movements with a baby play mat

Baby play mats (or play gyms) help babies develop their bodies. With play mats, babies practice different movements such as reaching for objects, lifting the head, sitting up (and standing up when they reach the appropriate age). Some play mats also have electronic devices that teach babies words and songs and help them develop language. They usually contain stuffed animals, mirrors and various toys (for example rattlers). They also have various themes.

Your baby can then engage in many activities that accommodate each growth stage. Therefore, a baby play mat can help your baby make connections, learn new words and learn from different experiences. For safety, make sure that the play mats are sturdy so that they don't cause any accident. Make sure also that they do not have strings that can be dangerous or lead paint.

We recommend Fisher Price Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym because it can stimulate your baby with music, lights, nature sounds, games, etc. It also includes a spinner with rattling beads and a shiny mirror (which stimulate your baby's hearing and vision).
