Developmental Gift Ideas

Do you still have some shopping to do?!?!? Let us help!!

As a pediatric physical therapist, each holiday season (and for birthdays, too!) patient families inquire about helpful developmental-based gifts for their kids. Here are a *few* (I could have gone on and on...) favorites for various stages and abilities. These are not affiliate links. Many of these products can also be found locally or through small businesses. 

Here are a couple of our favorite small businesses - check them out to see if they have what you're looking for! Sling With Me, Nova Natural Toys

***And, it should go without saying that a babywearing carrier is ALWAYS on the list.***

Check out these awesome supporters of Lift Me Up for all of your babywearing carrier needs: myheartcreative, sleeping baby productions, Baby Tula, Cute Awaking & LILLEbaby

Now, for the TOYS....

What are your children's favorite toys that have aided in their development?
