Baby play should be a very important feature of baby's life, right from very early on. Interacting with your baby through play builds that parental bond, as well as building confidence, visual awareness and co-ordination for baby.
In those first few months you will hear your baby laugh for the very first time, probably the most amazing sound you will ever hear. Wouldn't it be great if he laughed while you were playing :-)
Lauren's first laugh was around two to three months and happened whilst we were playing
It was fantastic and something I will never forget.

If baby has any soft toys give them a wash every now and again because as baby grows, one of his favourite games will be putting the toys in his mouth. Any plastic toys can be sprayed down with detox or similar.
Keep a few toys out and put some others away for a couple of weeks, then you can rotate them and baby won't get bored with the same things.
