In this blog, we’re going to share our tips for entertaining your baby when out in the stroller.
Some babies love spending time in their stroller. They’re content, comfortable and occupied by the world around them. Other babies and toddlers get restless rather quickly when they’re in their stroller, particularly if they are now crawling or walking.
When babies reach a certain age, they suddenly become very curious about the world around them. They want to wriggle, crawl, climb and walk to explore every new environment. As a parent, it is rewarding to see our children develop from tiny babies to inquisitive toddlers. However, it can make things a little more challenging when you’re out with the stroller.
Regardless of how comfortable your luxury stroller is, your little one may have reached an age where they’re not as happy in their stroller as they used to be. But as you may well know, the stroller is a necessity when you’re out and about.
Not only does it provide a safe and comfortable place for your baby or toddler to sit and nap when you’re on the go, but it is also handy for storing your belongings and/or shopping.
Entertaining Your Baby When Out In The Stroller With Books
Research shows that introducing babies to books from an early age can enhance future brain development and improve cognitive skills. In a world where children are dazzled by tablets and smartphones, we think it’s more important than ever to introduce your baby to books.
Books are an essential development tool for your little one. And stroller books are a great way to entertain your baby when out in the stroller. In a recent blog, we shared a list of our favourite stroller books, including The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Buggy Book, Baby Sensory Say Hello Stroller Book and Peter Rabbit Stroller Book.
These books simply attach to the stroller bumper bar. They will keep your little one entertained whilst stimulating the senses, improving grasping skills and developing fine motor skills.
