Our Infantino Rattle & Teether Love Bug Rattle is designed with multi-modal stimulation. The spinning parts and soft, textured wings allow for the baby to explore hand and finger movement. Soft, textured parts allow for oral stimulation and meet babies’ teething needs.
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.
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.
