Holiday Gifts for Babies 7-9 Months
Ball Drop Toy:
This toy encourages the active release of your baby's hands, as well as object permanence.
Baby Sign Book:
Babies will be able to sign a word before they are able to say a word. This is why teaching baby signs is helpful and allows your baby to communicate when they are younger.
These books help babies with their fine motor skills. Babies are also starting to understand object permanence at this age, which makes hide and seek particularly engaging.
These cups provide endless hours of fun! They can help babies learn how to stack and nest and, as they get older, you can use them during water play to learn colors and numbers.
Large Knob Puzzle:
These are great for your baby's first puzzle. The knobs are easy to grasp so your baby will be able to pull the puzzle pieces out and put them back in. This is great for cognitive and fine motor development.
Activity tables encourage tummy time when used without the legs attached. When you attach the legs it encourages your baby to play on their knees or sitting, which are developmental gross motor positions that you want to encourage.
These toys are so fun! They encourage fine motor skills, problem solving, and cause and effect.
Using a tunnel is one of my favorite ways to encourage crawling, a very important motor skill at this age.
An outdoor swing provides a wonderful sensory experience for your baby. Swinging targets your baby's vestibular system, which provides a great sensory experience for your child.
Rody the Bounce Horse and Base:
Rody is a great toy that encourages gross motor development, core strength, balance, and coordination. For babies who are younger, I encourage you to get the rocking base and, once they get a bit older, you can remove it.
This prop pillow is one of my favorite ways to encourage a baby to get onto all 4's, which is the precursor to crawling. This is a great toy to encourage gross motor skills and crawling.
