Babi Magic – BORN FROM 3 SPECIAL CHILDREN

Babi Magic was brought to life by Tracey Levy after years of watching her 3 children self-soothe themselves with various textures, fabrics and labels of their favourite "blankies". 

Babi Magic was brought to life by Tracey Levy after years of watching her 3 children self-soothe themselves with various textures, fabrics and labels of their favourite “blankies”. 

Blankets can be used to swaddle since they are made from stretch cotton, to cover your baby, cover mom while feeding or making a fashion statement when covering the pram during sleep time.

From the moment of birth, a baby experiences life through its senses.  Two of the first and most important senses to develop is the sense of touch and then sight.
Tactile items, by nature of their intriguing physical texture, invite babies and children to touch, rub and knead them. All these actions stimulate sensors deep within the muscles and joints that encourage awareness of their body particularly those body parts in physical contact with the item such as fingers, hands and mouths.
Babies are near sighted and it is ideal to have a “blankie” close to them as opposed to a toy on the other side of their cot. 

Toys and blankets that offer different tactile and texture experiences are beneficial in helping children to develop a sensory ‘feeling’ vocabulary…..words to describe how objects feel e.g. soft, scratchy, rough, smooth etc.

Sensory play experiences may also help children to regulate stress. Just as a parent may rock, bounce or tap their baby to soothe them, so the rhythmical kinaesthetic movements of rubbing, squeezing, etc aide calming.
These are all important experiences for a baby to develop their emotional well-being and ability to regulate their own feeling states.
