Top 3 Ways to Boost Baby's Development from 6-9 Months with Busy Baby Products

Hey there busy parents! We know the 6-9 month period is a whirlwind of excitement as your little one embarks on crucial developmental milestones. 

From sitting independently to teething and mastering the pincer grasp, there is a lot happening in that tiny world.  But, fear not, because Busy Baby Products have your back with some fantastic tools to support your baby's growth and discovery. 

Let's dive into the top three ways Busy Baby can make this journey even more exciting!

  1. Independent Sitting: Let's Get Busy Baby Sitting Pretty! Every baby has their own pace, but around 6-9 months, you'll likely witness the magic of independent sitting. It's a game-changer for your little one's core strength and balance. To make sitting sessions more engaging, try sticking a Busy Baby Mat to a smooth surface, like a window or mirror. Surround your munchkin with comfy pillows or use a Boppy for added support, and watch them explore and play while developing trunk control and balancing skills.Cute Baby playing with toys attached to a Busy Baby Mat on a glass window
  2. Teething Time: Soothing Pains and Expanding Palates! Teething can be a trying time, and the 6-9 month range is when many babies start feeling those telltale signs. As your cutie sits up in their high chair, eyeing your dinner with curiosity, it's Busy Baby to the rescue! The Busy Baby Teether & Training Spoon is tailor-made for this stage. With its curved handle and textured end, it's not only a perfect teether but also a great companion for exploring first foods. Easily connect it to the Busy Baby Mat, add yogurts or purees, and watch as your baby hones their hand-to-mouth coordination for self-feeding skills.cute baby teething on a Busy Baby Teether and Training Spoon
  3. Pincer Grasp: Grabbing and Munching Made Easy with Busy Baby! Ah, the pincer grasp—the marvel of fine motor skills! Between 6-9 months, your baby will start using their thumb and forefinger to pick up small objects. Busy Baby Mat's non-slip surface is a game-changer, making it easier for your little one to grasp snacks. The built-in tray is perfect for those slippery foods, letting your baby pull the treat against the edge without it sliding around.
