There are many different ways you can encourage your baby to start crawling. You can do this by putting interesting objects in out of reach of your baby and gently encourage her to go and get them.
Of course, there are also many toys that help baby to crawl as well. These come with the usual bells, whistles and lights that attract the attention of little ones and encourage them to get crawling. The Vtech Move & Crawl ball is one such toy.
Push and Go toys, whether they are in the form of cute little animals or other characters or trains are excellent for this purpose.
These tend to be toys that don’t have strings to pull but you simply push down on a big button and the toy moves forward by itself.
Usually, these toys will move faster and go further on hard floors than carpet.
You can have an enjoyable play session with your little one with these toys and at the same time, you are getting them motivated to start to crawl.
You’ll find that these toys will last for a good number of months and not only for the period where your child is learning to crawl. Once your child is up and about, he or she will still enjoy pushing down on the toy and walking to catch it, once the crawling stage is over.
The Fisher Price Amazing Animals Sing and Go Choo-Choo Train is the type of toy that is ideal for this developmental stage in your baby’s life.
