How and when to use
The children's developing rug is a soft laying for the kid and the whole complex of the things helping your baby to develop. It consists of a soft mattress (with or without sides) and strong intersecting arcs on which toys and rattles are attached. They attract the attention of the baby lying on the rug.
At first he just examines them, then he tries to reach, grab, try to touch. It develops grasping reflexes, motor skills, teaches the child to concentrate, roll over, sit down. In addition, lessons on the rug will help mom gain time for important tasks. As for the age from which you can use, experienced mothers say that they are needed from one and a half months.
