Dr. Toy's Response to the concerned mom with an ll month old who wonders if her baby is getting enough stimulation. Dr. Toy suggests, enjoy each day and share discoveries. Talk, sing and use selected developmentally appropriate playthings, but most of all relax. Don't push yourself or your baby. Learning comes through natural play, fun and laughter. Watch her. Your baby takes it all in. The quality of the time you spend together is what is most important.

Let's play!
