My LO will be 6 months by Christmas, so what I've been doing is looking for toys that are for 6 months +, so obviously she wouldn't be able to have them before that anyway, if you see what I mean?

I'm starting to buy too!
My lo is nearly 5 months and he currently like any toys with different textures and ones that squeak and make a noise!

I'd recommend getting a few things suitable from 6 months plus, even though she might not be able to use them yet, she won't know that, and once you've opened them you can put them away until she can - otherwise she doesn't really have another 'present opportunity' (sorry can't think of a better way to put it) til her first birthday.
I like ELC, and their website has a gift finder facility, so if you put her age and a price range in it'll make suggestions.

I may get daggers for this one lol but what about a musical set? Tesco do a set which all goes in a drum (you screw the top off) and inside there is a tambourine and a rattle ect and you have the drum! ELC do loads of little musical instruments too! When ds was 4m he loved hitting things and rattling around.
You could also get a walker, but one that you can take the front off of so she can play with that at first then graduate to the actual walker when she's ready.
Jellycat do lovely plush teddies too that are so soft! You can get them in gap and john lewis and my ds used his White teddy bear as his comforter as it's just the right size! (they do him in 3 sizes
oh oh and a minnie mouse 'clubhouse' doll that does the hotdog dance! My ds was so entruiged by it when we went into the Disney store!
Hope that helps!

Trying in May - anyone want to join me?
Hello everyone. First time posting for me. My husband and I are officially about to start trying this month for baby number 3. We have two wonderful children eldest (son) is 8 and autistic and daughter is 5. I’m hoping this won’t be a long journey for us this time. Our first son took 9 months after two bad mcs. We were incredibly lucky with our daughter and caught on the first attempt. Anyone else just started this journey? Lots of baby luck for everyone trying to conceive this month xx
