I'm a first-time mom, and I'm really interested in finding ways to introduce my baby to different types of play materials. I've heard a lot about sensory toys, musical instruments, and art supplies as being great for stimulating my baby's development, but I'm not entirely sure where to start.
My baby is currently around 6 months old and is just starting to explore the world around her. I want to make sure that I'm providing her with opportunities to explore new textures, sounds, and sensations.
So, I'm looking for advice on how to go about introducing her to these types of play materials. What are some good toys or instruments to start with? How can I make sure she's safe while playing with them? And are there any tips or tricks for encouraging her to engage with these materials?
Thanks in advance for your help! I can't wait to hear your suggestions.
