Cognitive Development, baby play mat allows babies to learn the basics of cause and effect. The mat stimulates ‘primary circular reactions’, meaning it encourages babies to repeat an action they did by chance (for example, hitting a toy by mistake). As babies grow, they pull on, grab or kick a toy intentionally (secondary circular reactions) and repeat them because they find them fun. Simply put, baby play mat in some sense ‘forces’ babies to interact with dangling toys. Visual Development. Baby play mat supports baby’s visual perceptual skills. This is because babies prefer objects with highly contrasting colours and baby play mat design usually is a contrast of bright colours. Gross Motor Development. Baby play mat stimulates a baby to crawl and use legs, hands and arms, which helps build muscles. More importantly, it encourages laying on stomach which strengthens neck, back, and arms and also supports development of gross motor skills (rolling, crawling, walking), hand skills, visual skills and even speech and feeding skills (stronger neck better supports the jaw essential for talking and eating). Baby play mat is very easy to use, to clean, it is portable (you can easily fold it and take with you on a vacation) and can also be customized (you can always hang extra or different toys). Although designed for babies, play mat is suitable for toddlers as well.
LATCH Connectors, a harnessed child seat will be equipped with either push-on, hook-style, or rigid lower anchor LATCH (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) connectors. These attach to the lower anchors embedded in the crease of the vehicle seat. All cars built after 2002 have these LATCH anchors. They have a weight limit, so when the combined weight of your child and car seat exceeds 65 lbs., install the seat using the vehicle’s own seat belt. Top Tether Strap, forward-facing harness seats include a top tether strap that anchors to the vehicle seat and keeps the shell of the child seat secure, significantly reducing the potential for head injuries. We recommend that you secure the top tether for all forward-facing installations. Harness System, all infant, convertible, all-in-one, and toddler booster seats have a built-in adjustable harness system. As your child grows, you’ll need to continually adjust the harness so that straps are located correctly. In rear-facing seats, harness straps should be at or below the baby’s shoulders. In forward-facing seats, straps should be at or above the shoulders. Many harnesses are adjusted by rethreading the straps through slots in the fabric and seat shell, but some offer an easier, external harness adjustment option. In all cases, the chest clip should be at armpit level. The harness is tight enough when you can’t pinch any strap fabric at the child’s shoulders.
