Babies love rattles because these entertaining objects make fun sounds and come in cool designs and colours ― just as much as their parents do. After all, not only do these simple playthings amuse bubba, they also help in their development.
These relatively inexpensive products offers a host of benefits when your little one plays with it. Besides sparking an array of sensory experiences for baby ― they can be grasped and shaken ― these noisemakers boost muscle development and hand-eye coordination.
Their bright hues also help with early colour perception, which promotes brain development. And when your little one starts to teethe, some rattles even double as teethers that your baby can chew on to soothe sore gums.
Just make sure you buy rattles that are age-appropriate and safe for your baby, which means that these should be at least 5cm in diameter, so that they can’t choke on it, and free of sharp edges.
