Toys are not just for fun, they also have great benefits for the child's physical development. Now some parents buy toys for kids more blindly and seek new and expensive. In fact, parents should choose the right toys for their children more specifically.
Exercise eyesight and hearing for baby at 0-3 months
Babies born shortly usually seldom blink, so many parents naturally think that they can't see anything. Experts said: "The baby has a vision, especially sensitive to red and yellow." Hanging some small colored objects on the bed can not only create warmth for the baby but also exercise their vision. However, experts also reminded that usually within 1 month of the newborn, the pendant should be changed every few days, so as not to cause the baby to strabismus; the older children, parents can often take bright objects to draw the baby's sight, the distance is just mobilized Baby eyeballs and heads are appropriate.
0 to 3 months is also a rapid period of baby's hearing development. Professor Liu Jiping, the chief physician of the Children's Hospital of Beijing Children's Hospital, suggested that the baby should be given appropriate sound stimulation to promote hearing development. For example, you can attach different sound quality, a tone sounds in the crib. However, the selected toy can't be too loud, so pay attention to the distance when placing it. Because strong sound stimulation tends to damage the child's tympanic membrane, excessive noise can cause hearing fatigue, making them less susceptible to speech differences.
Exercise with different textured toys
There are many kinds of toys on the market, such as plush and plastic, as well as wood and rubber. Many parents will only randomly choose several kinds of children to change their tastes. Experts believe that children should be exposed to different textures. The toy is used to exercise the touch. In addition, when bathing your baby, you can put some plastic bath toys of different shapes, so that your baby's small hand touch these boats and ducklings will also help their tactile development.
The child's sense of touch will gradually increase with age, so the exercise touch must be planned and step by step. When the baby is lying on his back, you can choose some thin, easy-to-grip rattles at the bedside, guide the child to reach out to the target, and learn to grasp; wait until the child can catch some items after 6 months, you should train the child. Passing and handing over small and light items, let them feel the estrangement in hand strength and the shift of the center of gravity; when the child has a certain amount of strength, it is suitable to buy toys such as tambourines that can be beaten, and exercise more precise hand eyes. Coordination.
Ball exercise coordination abilityThe child's motor coordination ability is most easily exercised through toys. Through appropriate toys, it can effectively promote the development of children's motor coordination, including limb control, coordination, and body balance.
A cheap and good ball is a very practical toy. When the ball bounces, its height and direction are uncertain, and the baby can follow the eye, hands, brains, and body movements so that the overall coordination ability of the muscles is strengthened. However, when choosing the ball, Professor Huang emphasized that in addition to paying attention to size and elasticity, it is more important to choose a ball made of non-toxic materials to prevent the child from biting while playing.
The trolley that can be pushed and pulled can also exercise the child's athletic ability. Because this kind of movable toy can expand the baby's activity and exploration range, the muscle strength, as well as the movement coordination ability of the hands and feet, will be unknowingly enhanced. She is not in favor of using the walker to train the children to walk, because the walker is more to let the baby walk on the toes, the heel is basically no force, which will not help the baby's leg strength exercise and the correct walking posture.
