The large, colorful surface offers baby a wide space for motor and sensory experimenting, whether lying on her tummy, on her back or practicing rolling over. Stimulating the different senses helps develop babies' balance, coordination, posture, etc. It also helps increase babies' control over their body.
If your baby seems restless or uncomfortable, lie beside her and help her get used to this open new playing environment. Focus her attention on one of the features: the giraffe, the whale, the polar bear etc. If baby still seems overwhelmed, try adjusting the level of stimulation by concealing some of the features with a soft bib.
If your baby seems bored or uninterested, place her in front of the more eye-catching features, such as the hot-air balloon and its peek-a-boo windows or the elephant, and play with them. Encourage her to explore the various textures on the blanket and place some extra toys within reach.
Lie next to your baby, cuddle him, talk to him. Enjoy the opportunity to get to know each other.
Encourage your baby to lie on her tummy by placing her facing one of the cute animals. Point to it and say: "Here's a big elephant!", while crinkling the elephant's big ear to draw baby's attention.
As baby grows, use the animal figures and world theme to make up fun stories that will engage baby and help expand his vocabulary while enjoying some one-on-one quality time with Mom or Dad.
