Day 214 - Toys that aren't toys

Today's first time parenting tip - Let your baby play with things that aren't toys

It seems that no matter how many toys we put out for our son, he always seems to gravitate towards things that he shouldn't be playing with. Our paychecks, the breast pump, cords, etc. Or if we're in the kitchen, he sees us getting into cupboards and then he wants to get into them too.

To satisfy this, keep some things around that aren't necessarily toys, but they're things that are OK for him to have. We've had him playing with things like a pringles can, one of our shirts, a study piece of cardboard. Use your judgement, since some things are obviously unsafe, like paper with staples in it, cords or heavy objects.
