I was more than a little excited when I found out I was among the lucky few selected by Mom Central to be an Infantino Test Drive Mom! As a matter of fact, I let out an enthusiastic "Woo-Hoo" and even did a little Happy Dance, much to the amusement of my family, since this mama cannot dance. At all. Why is this so exciting? Because Infantino is a trusted leader in safe, colorful, stimulating baby products.
You've probably seen their wonderful products at just about every retailer you've been to. From colorful playmats and activity gyms to great travel toys and teethers, Infantino is a name synonymous with quality. Moms have been turning to Infantino for years to provide their babies with fun, developmentally appropriate play that is specifically designed to stimulate their imaginations and their senses. With delightful sounds, vibrant colors, and a variety of textures, Infantino products allow baby to explore the world around them and produce tons of smiles and giggles. (And I challenge anyone to tell me a sweeter sound than a baby's laughter!) I think it's safe to say, Infantino rocks!
I recently received products from Infantino's brand new Comforting Play Collection. These products are absolutely ingenious, because they are specifically designed to calm and soothe baby as they play! This line includes a wide variety of products that feature cuddly friends that baby is sure to adore. From fantastic foot and wrist rattles to unique, Buckwheat filled, chillable Ouchie Pals to soothe those boo-boos, these great toys stimulate baby's development and calm them as they explore. And we all know, Happy Baby means Happy Mommy!
Just take a look at these great new innovations from Infantino!
Xander, my soon-to-be 7 month old, especially loves the All Around 1-2-3 Teether! He is currently teething, and seems to really enjoy the 3 uniquely designed areas of this 3-in-1 Teether. They each offer different feels and textures that help to soothe different areas of a baby's mouth while teething. He loves to play with this toy and will sit happily for hours chewing on and examining this fabulous teething aid. And it's made to perfectly fit baby's hands, so it's easy to grasp. The 3 different teethers also slide to the side, which Xander finds very entertaining. One of the teethers is water-filled, and can be chilled to provide sore gums with nice cooling comfort. This is great to aid with the discomfort of teething, and the bright colors and different textures are sure to capture baby's attention and ultimately distract them from the soreness as their pearly whites begin to emerge.
Xander also really adores the wrist and foot rattles! We slipped on the cute little booties and put on the wrist rattles, and he immediately began squealing with delight as with every kick and movement, a fun rattling noise occurred! These great wearable rattles help stimulate baby's development by encouraging them to move, shake and reach! These are also wonderful for helping to hone the very important skill of hand-eye coordination. As Xander kicks and plays, he often looks at the cuddly little animal pals on the foot rattles, and will actually bring his feet up to his chest and will reach out and touch them, exploring their plush bodies and feeling the soft textures. When he starts getting fussy, all we need to do is put his rattles on and give him floor time, and like magic, he starts giggling and smiling as he plays. These great products have proven to be a lifesaver in my home on multiple occasions now, and we pack them in the diaper bag whenever we have errands to run or go to visit friends. They provide just the right amount of stimulation for our growing boy, and they keep him entertained for hours!
My toddler, Sophie, especially loves the Soothing Snuggle Pup. This fun, plush puppy is great while on the go, as it is super-portable and can even be attached to car seats and strollers using the attached velcro closure to keep baby happy when you're out and about. This adorable, snuggly pup is soft and colorful, and features a removable "music box" that fits securely into the body of the toy that offers 3 soothing melodies that are sure to help baby calm down for their afternoon nap. Sophie just loves carrying the Soothing Snuggle Pup around and giving him loads of hugs. You know how Linus is with his blankie in the Peanuts series? Well, that's how Sophie is with her Soothing Snuggle Pup. He has quickly turned into her most cherished companion, and she takes him everywhere she goes! The fantastic part? I don't have to worry about this playful pup getting dirty, since I can remove the music box and toss him into the wash. (I have washed this toy twice on delicate settings.)
Overall, we love our collection of toys from the Infantino Comforting Play line! They are bright, engaging, and offer wonderful soothing properties that are sure to calm a cranky, tired baby. And since the experts at Infantino are absolutely in tune with babies, their entire line of products is super-portable for families on the go! The Comforting Play collection is a must-have Baby Shower gift for those expectant mamas out there, as these products are made specifically to be "Mamas Little Helpers." And what new mom doesn't want products to help calm and soothe her baby? I would have loved to receive these toys while I was expecting, as they have quickly become our go-to products when our babies want to play, or might need a little special touch to help soothe them. After all, growing up is hard work! And as a mom, it is comforting to know that whatever my babies' developmental needs, Infantino has me covered.
