Because babies love emptying and refilling things (like handbags or saucepans drawers) a great game to play is to give him an empty box or ice-cream tub and fill it with non-chokable items like plastic spoons, sticky tape rolls, chunky necklaces and smaller stacking toys. Your baby will love to empty the box and refill it over and over again. And before it gets too frustrating, remember your baby learns from repetitive play.

Play is a hugely important part of every child’s development because it encourages natural creativity, fuels their imaginations and helps them to practise all sorts of skills needed for when they are older. It is not enough to put your baby down in front of a television, what your baby really needs is you down on the floor with him, making mud pies or blowing bubbles. Obviously you can’t play with your child all the time, but if you have other tasks to do try to incorporate play along with them.

For example, if you are making dinner why not give your baby saucepans and a wooden spoon so he can help you by making a pretend dinner.
