What are good ways of stimulating your 3-6 month old baby?
DS is not interested in his rattle at all, he likes his baby gym, but I need a new one (suggestions on that too?)
He likes it when his daddy makes faces, but when I do it he's like "good try mom, but no, just no."
He likes things he can slap, things that make noises, and colorful lights.

Singing and touching. Going for walks outside so he can see the world. Since he's not mobile it's pretty much just stimulating his vision and hearing.

read to baby. simple book with tons of colors. we also went on youtube and watched fishies. lol it's video's for your cat, but they love to watch the bright colored fish swim around. I wear my kids a lot, so they are always doing what ever I'm doing. looking around and seeing the world around them

Reading in bright picture books, just even pointing things out like bird or cat etc....Singing. I do baby massages for relaxing them.

Walking around outside and just sitting with them talking and doing peek-a-boo, stuff like that.

Most of the time I just talked to him, sang to him, talked about our day, what I was doing. Id just act like he was my little friend and he loved it lol. We read books I also had baby Einstein movies that he watched to for like fifteen min a day. He loved those! Tummy time id get on the floor with him with toys. I kinda had to show him how to play with the toys like id put it in his hand and my hand over his hand and shake or make it make sounds whatever it did. It's fun to watch there face light up when they realize a toy does something that they had no idea it did haha sorry for the long post, lol I guess I was kinda reminiscing when ds was a. Baby lol
