Your baby’s eyesight isn’t fully developed when she’s born. She can’t make out far away objects or differentiate between all the colors of the rainbow. What can she see? You when you’re close by (hooray!) and big contrasts between light and dark colors. That’s why you’ll find many baby toys and goodies in high contrasting black, white and red patterns. Stimulate your baby’s vision with these bold toys, blankets, art and books – some parents even swear they’ll magically calm and captivate your infant.

Chew On This

Let your little one soothe his gums and improve his eyesight all at the same time with this geometric-patterned rabbit ear-style teether. Made from cotton and solid maple that's treated with organic beeswax - this handmade toy is one you won't mind seeing in your babe's mouth all day long.

Available from Home Sewn by Laura on, $7.
