During the first three months, your baby needs stimuli for watching and focusing. Stimuli should be placed at an optimal distance (8-12 inches) and should include some movement.
As he lies on his back facing the toys hanging within arm's reach, baby can gaze in the apple-shaped mirror, play with the snail teether or gaze at the toys dangling in front of him.
Baby’s developing senses and hand control allow him to reach out to the toys confidently, bat at the owl rattle, play peek-a-boo with crinkly leaf, hold the snail teether and pull them to his mouth for further exploration.
The flexibility of Woodland Take Along Arch allows you to moderate the level of stimulation offered by simply adjusting the stimuli within baby’s field of vision.
If your baby seems restless or uncomfortable (crying, fussing or averting his gaze), distance the arch and reconnect it or remove the owl and leaf teether. You could also fold the arch in a way that allows baby to focus on just one or two of the toys.
If your baby seems bored or uninterested, draw the arch closer to her (8-12in/20-25cm away) and adjust its position so that the toys are within baby’s reach. Baby will be able to hit the toys with her hands and, later on, grab them with ease. To draw her attention, rattle the owl close to her.
