    My little lady seems to get bored a lot, she has grown out of peek-a-boo and her play mat thingy, I try to play with balls and toy cars etc with her but she's not interested. She's not interested in pushing buttons or seeing what things do, the only things she seems interested in are wires and my mobile :shock:
    Does anyone have any ideas for me? I feel like I'm neglecting her for letting her get so bored :cry:

    I think its something babies have built in to them ''must go for things that Im not allowed'' as oran always wants what he cant have (computer wires, tv remotes, glasses etc)

    he loves things that make noise and sing though so he has quite a few noisey toys, they might only keep him amused for 10 minutes but I saw something that said babies only have a 7 to 10 minute attentionspan anyway before they get bored and want to be off. He likes shiny things as well so I got him some ELC building blocks that have all differnet things on one side so like mirror on one, reflective shiny paper etc

    he also loves round and round the garden, this little piggy, headdering a helium baloon (These are great, about £1 they last for ages, nearly un burstable and the babies LOVE them!), he like being chucked up in the air and stuff as well and sitting in his walker

    dont worry your not neglecting her!

    Agree with above, helium balloons lol!

    Eefie loves being talked to so books are always good, read out the shopping list, ANYTHING!

    He is immensely fond of the activity triangle from ELC

    It can also be taken out with us if we're visiting anyone.

    And his walker

    I think babies are programmed in the womb as he LOVES cars, cars on TV, watching them go past, toy cars and his football & rugby ball as well, he instinctively kicks :D
