Build learning kids by let them play with building blocks

Building blocks have been around for more than decades and most of us had played with blocks in our growing years. Building with blocks provides one of the most valuable learning experiences available for young children. Block play stimulates learning in all domains of development, intellectual, physical, and social-emotional and language, most importantly allow a child to free imagination.

Researchers proved that children who play with blocks when they are three, four and fives years of age will do better in math, especially Algebra in middle school.

There are several types of baby blocks in the market today. How do I know which kind of blocks play is suitable for my kids? We do believe that not all blocks will work for all age groups. There is a natural progression of blocks play and introducing infants and toddlers to block play is invaluable.

Blocks play for 3 to 12 months old

When babies are first introduced to blocks, they learn how to hold them, how to feel, they attract by blocks’ eye-catchy color, that is great for tiny hands that are just learning to maneuver things. Then start to carry them around. They will experiment with how blocks may sound when they fall, or when they bang them together. Through block play a young child’s expressive and receptive language is being expanded by learning words.

They are durable, easy to clean, and perfect for carrying out, also allows kids to have fun and gain knowledge in a safe environment. It can also stimulate creativity, enhance team working ability and develop imagination.

Does baby really need pacifier?

Every parents have their own perspective about pacifier, some said it is necessary for babies and they said pacifier can help soothe babies. Some said it may cause nipple confusion, or even cause a mother’s milk supply to drop because the baby is sucking at the breast less, then may would harm their teeth development.

Does baby really need pacifier?

Some babies able to soothe themselves, some need pacifier to help them feel calm. Most babies have a strong sucking reflex. Some babies even suck their thumbs or fingers before they're born.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that parents need to wait until your baby is breastfeeding well and your milk supply is established in order to prevent nipple confusion, your baby’s 1 month birthday should be about right. If your baby is nursing well, gaining weight, and has a routine feeding schedule, you can start earlier. Give baby the pacifier after their regular feedings to make sure they gets all the nourishment they needs.

The benefits of using a soother


Research by the American Academy of Pediatrics shows giving infants a pacifier at night helps reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). “While it’s not as significant as sleeping position or avoiding blankets, some studies show that sucking on a soother does help prevent SIDS,” says Saunders. It even helps if your baby spits it out as soon as she falls asleep. The only time pacifiers should be restricted is if a child is prone to ear infections. “Sucking on a soother may make it difficult for the ear tubes to drain properly,” says Saunders.

As a new parent, comforting your baby is one of your highest priorities, and you may find a pacifier very helpful.

Also, a pacifier habit is easier to break than a thumb-sucking habit. After all, you can dispose of a binky!

Once your child is two or three years old, it’s time to phase out the soother to avoid adverse dental effects. Underlying changes to the jawbone usually don’t start until around age four, and the hard palette isn’t fused until about ages six to eight. But if you worry, you can talk with your dentist to confirm.

Like every parenting issue, there is no one right or wrong answer. It will depend on what the individual child likes. But, here to mention, have you ever read your pacifier’s welcome instruction? Probably not, I’m guessing.

Actually in every pacifier’s welcome instruction, they told parents not to user longer than 2 months. If you use WubbaNub, it means you need to change WubbaNub every 2 months, since they plushies and pacifier is undetachable. You can rip the seams on your wub and replace the soothie but it won’t be easy.
