The common phrase that “newborns only sleep, eat and poop” may seem true for many parents, however, this is not the case. During the first three months of life babies are changing drastically and learning from everything that they do and see. It may seem pointless to spend money on newborn toys, but most toys will actually benefit the overall development of your newborn. These toys can provide added stimulation and improve the motor development of newborns. Here are some of the best newborn toys for all new parents to consider getting or adding to their baby registry.
