So we have the obligatory jumperoo, which she loves. She has rainforest gym which is fab, but now she is always rolling over onto her front it kind of gets in the way of her if you see what I mean?! She often Gets frustrated and cries.
Should I just buy a huge blanket and put that down so she can roll about freely? I don't think it will be long before she is crawling, any toys that can help with this?
What toys does your 7 month old have? I'm worried she is bored blush
Also people keep asking me what she want for Christmas, I have no idea about toysconfused

Thanks all. I feel reassured by this. I'll let her go at her own pace and let her take the lead.

DS2 is 7 months and mostly plays with DS1's old stuff. Now that he's sitting up, we've put lots of different toys (rattles, teethers, musical things, Lamaze toys, soft toys) in little baskets which he spends ages rummaging through.

He also plays with this Leapfrog musical table which my mum got for DS1 and is still going strong - both kids have loved it. The legs detach so when they're at crawling stage you can lay it on the floor in front of them. DS2 quite often plays with it at the dining table while I cook dinner (we have one of those high chairs that pulls right up to the table). Then when they start pulling up to standing you can put the legs on. The tunes aren't too annoying, either.

He also likes chomping on Sophie the Giraffe, being sung to and watching DS1 charge around like a lunatic smile

Sorry, ignore my second message it was for another thread!
I'll have a look out for one of those tables on eBay.
She is still a bit wobbly when sitting up so this might help her.

My mind's gone a bit blank I'm afraid but I remember at that age ds liked his rainmaker (a sort of shakey thing - google it if unsure), his Baby Einstein balls set, and really just any interesting object that he could hold and reach out for. Looking towards Christmas, check out things like stacking cups, blocks, and activity tables. I also recommend the chicco car ride-on which starts out as a rocker and then converts into a regular ride-on and walker. DS enjoyed sitting in it pressing the buttons from about 8/9 months old.

Ah, the Chicco Quattro 4 in 1. That's what I was thinking of.

Right now our 8mo likes empty crisp packets and other things he shouldn't have. He uses toys that are supposed to be for older kids because he isn't the first: vtech laptop, microphone, Octonauts figures etc... Never shown much interest in the Lamaze toys that everyone gives as gifts.

Your Xmas list can include things for older babies. Everyone loves that noisy plastic walker, a smart trike, some little people or similar stuff.

My dd, nearly 8 months loves stacking cups, shape sorter (just pulling them out the main hole) and pulling down towers made with baby Lego (weird stuff with just one bump so can pull apart easily). She's also got into things that roll, so roll something towards her and she'll grab it.

We put the baby gym away a while ago but she's been sitting well for a couple of months so didn't like spending time on her back. Had a couple of rugs on top of each other for a while while she was developing her sitting so if she did topple didn't hurt herself.
