Share Button

I am writing about the top ten items for your Montessori baby. I would love for you to see and learn about some wonderful products being shared. I hope your baby loves these as much as mine does.

Toys, Toys, Toys… The question is “what does baby really need,” or “what are some of the best things for baby?” Here’s what I have learned on this journey of motherhood.  A few quality items really do go a long way.

When I had my first son, I bought everything out there. I didn’t stop to think what he was actually going to get out of playing with it. Was he learning anything from this toy? I have learned a lot over the years. I’ve learned that the more stuff is definitely not better.  There are to many choices and they have a hard time deciding. Plus the more stuff you have the more it makes for a cluttered space.

Top Ten items for a Montessori Baby 6 months to 12 Months

One of the reasons Dr Maria Montessori was so clear on a prepared environment, was so that everything the child came in contact with would facilitate and maximize independent learning and exploration.

Doesn’t that sound great? That is why I decided to put this list together, It is for the mom’s that are budget conscious, but still want the best. So here are my Top 10 items for baby.

Blocks:  babies love to hold them, look at the colors, stack them. Older children can use these to learn there colors and build. Also perfect for light tables.

Babies love to look at themselves in mirror, so what better than to practice balancing at the same time.  Plus this bar/mirror set is so cute.

Books are so important for a child’s development, and being able to get them for themselves makes it that much better. This natural bookshelf is the perfect size for your child from 6 months to 10 years. It is well worth the cost to have a life long reader.
