Who says your baby can't play with toys? You have to start sometime, why not now. My son is 4 months old and love love loves his exersaucer. He's still getting used to the toys, but the colors and sounds keep him entertained. They love flashy lights, colors, sounds, etc. My son LOVES his glowworm, and glow seahorse (you can purchase at walmart for about 10 bucks)! He is learning to reach and grab for things... and this is all because I encourage him to. As far as food, stick with breastmilk or formula-- at least for another month or two. Then you can introduce small amounts of rice cereal.

Four months is pretty young for "games". Peek a boo and singing is always good. Also, it's never to early to start reading to your child. I created a community for moms to swap ideas for fun and educational activities do with their little ones, it's called SAHM's are Teachers! (No need to be a SAHM). You should check it out, every week I post a new activity to try.

Little babies like like looking at things in black and white or high contrasting colours. They also like faces and anything that moves slowly in front of them (appprox 20cm I'm told) and music. Gentle massage is great when they are in the mood for it and is good for bonding too.
The World Health Organisation now recommends only breast or formulae milk until 6 months. By waiting until the digestive system is properly developed at 6 months, even for liquidized foods, you help prevent allergies. Have fun playing!!!

You can do anything to play with them... Everyday is a day to learn and develope... Get small books and read to them just because they don't understand the words doesn't mean that it doesn't catch their eye.. Flash cards also catch their attention... Sing songs with hand motions... Get toys that you supervise over her with.. Just make sure you do step one in the baby foods berfore stage two just to make sure that she won't have reactions to anything... Best of luck!

At 4 months there really isn't too much to do as far as playing...maybe peek-a-boo, but she's probably too little for that also. You can always read books to her...that's great at any age. As far as food...I always gave half juice/half water & whole milk for drinks, and I purchased a $5 food processor at Walmart & blended up whatever I made for lunch or dinner. If you don't like to process things, just mix the baby cereal with the baby food...mine always loved that & it will keep her full.
