Hello loves! Zuri & Zaila's mom here aka Twin Mom to the ZAJA Twins! Can you tell how much I'm loving my new title and responsibilities ;-) One thing I'm loving is putting my psychology degree to use as I: 1) learn more about my girls and 2) balance teaching them in understanding innate versus learned behavior.
The early days of raising twins consist of a lot of the same it seems - eat, sleep, poop, burp, rinse, repeat; but our babies are using every one of these precious minutes in their new environment to take in their new surroundings.
For my postpartum recovery I decided to invest in a daytime doula - and loves this is how I was reminded about one of my favorite learning baby toys for the twins, the Lovevery Play gym & Play kit. My thoughtful, holistic postpartum daytime doula, Brianna Torres from Birthroot, and I discussed visual stimulation for the girls and how babies recognize black and white at this early age. She encouraged me to think about bringing the Playmat because of it's cross functionality - great for playtime, tummy time, naptime, and tons of Montessori toys that exercise our array of senses. You can see how quickly partnering with Lovevery became a no brainer!
Here are my top 5 reasons why Bakari and I love these Montessori Baby Toys for our girls:
1) Visual Stimulation - the two-sided mobile provides months of visual exploration and focus at diaper time. Babies are riveted by high contrast images in the early months so the simple black and white card set is captivating for the twins. It's incredible to see their eyes light up and lock in on the images.
2) Physical Stimulation - the black and white mittens promote hand discovery, hand control, and body awareness. And prevent babies from sucking their thumbs :)
