When your baby begins sitting at 6-7 months—and possibly crawling soon after that—a whole new world opens up to her. As she explores her environment with her newfound mobile skills, she’ll put almost everything she finds into her mouth, especially when she begins teething. For this stage, it’s more important than ever to choose solid, sturdy books that will stand up to chewing and drooling such as those in Baby Einstein Playful Discoveries.
This is also the stage when your child starts to develop some dexterity and can begin to hold books on her own. When reading to your crawler or sitter, don't be afraid to get down on her level. Join her on the floor with a couple of big pillows, and prepare yourself for plenty of breaks as your baby heads off for impromptu explorations. Be patient—she’ll eventually return to pick up where you left off in the story.
