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.
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.
