When I was pregnant with my second one, I looked up on the internet for newborn materials.
And these Montessori interlocking discs was my most desired of all. I had ours handmade for I couldn’t find them here in India.
As this would be doubling up as a teething material, I wanted to make sure a wood that is safe for the kid was being used.
I like this best because the baby could hold this in different angles, also it is lighter in weight and it can be brought to the mouth effortlessly.
I love that this simple toy can bring so much excitement to a newborn.
When my little peanut was close to two months, he struggled to hold these…no surprise there 🙂
So, we introduced it a little later and he could just grab them for a few seconds and then drop it down.
A couple of weeks later he was able to hold them for much longer.
And then one day he surprised me by transferring the material from one hand to the other.
Now that he is 6 months old he finds joy in banging them up on the floor 🙂
And you know the best part- when tapped casually, this material rolls off gently encouraging the child to crawl to reach it.
When my lil peanut first saw it roll, he seemed so surprised that his eyes almost popped out 🙂
P.S: I intend to make it available in the shop sooner. Keep watching out this space if you are expecting a newborn or have one in your hands already 🙂
And say hello to little Peanut 🙂
