  • At this time, your little one loves to explore things around him through his mouth. Ensure that the toys have smooth edges and textures, so that it will not pierce and scratch your little one's mouth or skin. Avoid toys made of cheap plastic and harmful paints. As your little one grows, he develops a habit of putting things directly to his mouth. Most parents find this habit as disturbing, but this is a natural way for little babies to learn about objects in their surroundings. 
  • Hence, as parents you need to stock up toys which have smooth edges. Moreover, avoid objects which have small protruding pieces that can cause choking hazards. Select toys from the market which are made with quality plastic and the ones that do not use harmful chemicals. Always keep a check on your little baby so as to note his actions during this phase.
