Soothe baby’s tender gums with this soft, textured Infantino Safari Teething Pal. The circular design is easy for small hands to grasp and hold.
In the first year of your baby’s life, they will develop a variety of fine motor skills. For instance, a newborn typically has a primitive hand grasp and by 2 months of age, they can hold a rattle when it’s placed in their hand.
By 6 months of age, babies can typically hold one block in two hands and can shake a rattle. At 9 months, most babies display the raking pincer grasp and by 12 months of age they have perfected the pincer grasp, can hold a bottle, and can drop a block into a cup.
There are many other reasons though why babies like to put teether toys in their mouths to chew on. It is not always a relief when their teeth are emerging.
It is part of child development that babies will try to put things into their mouths at an early age. All that mouthing and munching encourages a baby to move their tongue inside their mouth. This gives the child awareness of their mouth. These motions help to lay the foundation for learning speech sounds as babies begin to babble while learning to say their first words, “mama” “dada” and “baba.”
The Infantino team thinks smart, creates smart, and has loads of fun while doing it. Their joy comes from watching the world love and use the Infantino toys daily.
