How We Evaluate Stuff for a 1 Month Old Infant
Every gift and toy on our list for 1 month old infants have been chosen using the following criteria.
When determining the educational value of a gift for a small infant we look at the gift’s ability to aid the child in reaching developmental milestones. These milestones include such things as their eyes being able to track slow moving objects close to their eyes, Being able to focus for short periods of time, reacting to gentle sounds etc.
One month old babies don’t play in the traditional way we think of children playing. We determine the entertainment value of a toy or gift by whether or not the gift allows the baby to be exposed to a number of different situations, adds to their comfort, or has the ability to soothe them when they feel upset.
