Turn everyday into play time
A free app suggests ways to better encourage your baby’s development during the first year of life with fun activities. Developer Mead Johnson says they’ll “tell you how to do each activity, describe any toys or props you might need, and let you know exactly how it helps your baby reach important motor, cognitive, communication and social milestones.” It also makes it easy to “share your memories—whether they’re pictures or just descriptions of your baby’s reactions—with your friends and family on Facebook or by email.” The AmazingBaby app is free here on iTunes.

Get a doctor on the screen
Maybe you don’t have to drive to the emergency room –— or even schedule the visit with a pediatrician. A new service will bring the doctor to your house, any time. Well, it’s not actually a house call: MDLIve will put the doctor onscreen for a two-way video call. More
Baby Einstein goes to the jungle
To the best of my knowledge, Albert Einstein was not a notorious safari adventurer. Nonetheless, the fine folks at Baby Einstein advise you “Send your baby to the jungle and back in the Safari Adventure Gym and Tunnel.” The 4.5-foot long creative play space “provides a padded, roomy environment promoting three fun ways to play,” the company adds: “tummy time, sitting and crawling, with plenty of padded crawling space for babies to explore.” The tunnel mat “mixes in real-life imagery with vivid colors and 3 languages to enhance your baby’s sense of discovery.” There are also a sun rattle, leaf-shaped teether, and a ring rattle with beads and extra links.

Wonder Whale kicking gym
We don’t recommend training your toddler to kick whales, but Infantino says “babies will love kicking their feet and watching the soft sea creatures sway.” The Wonder Whale Kicks and Giggles Gym comes with a water-filled pat mat, a tummy time bolster, and four linkable activity toys for “baby-activated fun.” It all makes for “a playful way to help improve motor skills and teach cause-and-effect,” the company adds.

Anklet tracks tot’s sleep
“Say goodbye to guesswork,” say the designers of a “smarter baby monitor that senses, learns and predicts.” Worn around your baby’s ankle, the Sproutling monitors heart rate, skin temperature and body movement, and also tracks the room temperature, and humidity. The data is sent to your phone where the app creates simplified notifications. More
An elephant soothes with vibrations
This perfectly plush pal “is always ready to snuggle and snooze,” Fisher-Price says. With the Calming Vibrations Soother, your child can press the elephant’s heart to “hear 10 minutes of music and soft humming sounds with calming vibrations.” The device “helps your baby understand when it’s time to wind down and go to bed,” the company adds.

Projector soothes baby in the crib
There are plenty of camera monitors that show you your baby in the crib — but what about showing your infant something interesting as well? The Moonbeam will do just that: not only keep an eye on your child for you, but also display interesting images through its projector. More
