Last week, I talked about how you can develop positive sleep associations with your baby by giving them a toy such as The Leap Frog Hug and Learn or a Crib Aquarium. But, will your baby or toddler play with it too much rather than sleep? We want them to associate bed with sleep, not playtime.
No TV, reading, etc. So, how is it good for your baby to have toys in his crib?
We WANT them to play for a little bit when they wake up at the crack of dawn. Imagine your 10 month old baby waking up at 6: A mobile provides visual stimulation and promotes brain development.
Keep in mind, though, that some mobiles are meant to stimulate baby and others are meant to soothe baby to sleep. Make sure you use it at appropriate times. If your baby gets too excited by the mobile, he might take longer to fall asleep or have trouble settling down. Remember that crib aquarium my son used?
I took it out. He still took a long time to fall asleep. I was putting him down too early! Once he feels sleepy, he simply stops playing and goes to sleep. So, how are toys in the crib NOT a problem? They can hardly play with the same toy for a few minutes let alone hours. A baby who is sleepy is not usually going to play with the same toy for too long before drifting off to sleep.
Remember that crib aquarium my son used? Rather than bars, they will have breathable mesh sides with an aperture too small for any finger to fit into less than 5mm by the standards. Make sure you read all information to reduce SIDS risks.
Will there be some babies who truly WILL themselves out of sleep and play with a toy, instead? Why not let them do it too?
But, are crib toys safe? Make sure you read all information to reduce SIDS risks.
