Playing with a Newborn & Royal Darlings Top Pick Toys for Babies 0-3 Months

Updated: Aug 13, 2022

From birth babies can only see in black and white and therefore its best to use monochrome (black and white) toys with your little one.

These are some reasons why it's best to use Black and White toys for the first few months of your little ones life:

  1. Babies can only see black and white for the first few months of their lives

  2. Their eyes and capacity for sight are not fully developed at birth, they won't see in full colour until around 4 months of age

  3. Black and white sensory resources help stimulate the development of babies optic nerves

  4. Playing with your newborn using monochrome sensory resources helps new brain connections to form, which supports brain development

How best to play with your newborn

  1. Play in short 10-20 minute stints

  2. Make eye contact with them

  3. Use your black and white resources to help them make eye contact with the item and move it from side to side watching as they follow

  4. As they get a little older they will start to look for black and white resources and will start to hold large soft items in their hands

  5. Most importantly, no pressure, just have fun getting to know your new baby
