OMG what wonderful kind people you are!!! Thank you for rescuing him! Who could have kept that sweet face locked up in a shed?!

How long have you had him for now?



In case you are a new bunny parent and need any tips or ideas take a look at the little guide on care I assembled below https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Z_IvDuy5Fr-VOKwBVBSmZih0m1ATCIquIMhYyFl4aIw - it is a it long but quite thorough. I really tried to include all the info a new bunny parent might want into this guide...

​

Poor sweetheart look a little sad... I am so happy he has you now! Try to spend a lot of time on the floor with him if you can. You don't have to drop everything and be with him, just see if you can do some of the things you usually do on the floor.. he will love the company and it will make him feel happier and less lonely.

I am guessing his situation was far from ideal and he is understandably unsure and weary of people. But with some patience, the right approach and diligence you can change that. :)

What works best with bunnies is always always letting them come to you instead of you going to them... silly as it is, that is what makes them feel most secure around anyone who is trying to bond with them. The best way to encourage them to do this is another silly thing - get on the floor. Literally just sprawl out and do your own thing and wait for him to come and explore you (I promise he will if you are patient). On the floor you are on his own level and you feel both safe and curious for them explore.

I would honestly suggest trying to really focus for the next few week on spending lots of time on the floor with him when you are home. Anything you usually do just do it on the floor. The floor is their level and where they feel the safest and that is best for bonding. Sprawl out and let him hop all over you. Watch TV on the floor and lean against the sofa for comfort or even when you are on your laptop. Basically just make a real effort to spend lots of time with him on the floor for a couple weeks and see if that makes a difference I think it will. :) Always let him come to you on his own terms when he feels safe, don't reach for him if you feel like he is not feeling safe in that moment (kind of anticipate his feelings)... some greens will help make you feel more inviting and attractive, and over time you will be able to pet him while he is eating, and then he will learn that humans mean yummies and they are safe and he will pop by for pets from you more often. :)

Watch a couple videos below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3rlWno7B8g - great video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS9HcoC19h4 - another good video

It's really about the amount of time you spend around and with your bunny on his level (the floor) - the more the better.. The food is not a way to bond, but something that initially helps lure him to you to learn more about you and what to expect from - this of it this way… To bond with the bunny, grab some treats (I suggest cilantro or small pieces of dried apple) and sit on the floor in the same room as the bunny. Spend lots of time on the ground with it in spaced out sessions. Just read or watch Netflix, and wait for the bun to come to you. Eventually, he will probably come up and sniff you all over. Sit still and let him do that, then he'll hop away. The next time he comes, offer him treats from your hand. Repeat several times, just sitting and waiting for him to come get treats. When he's comfortable with that, and maybe flopping or binkying in your presence and close to you, reach out and pet his head as he is eating a treat. Almost all rabbits love having their heads pet/massaged. If you're lucky, after a while He'll be coming to you and asking for it by putting his head near your hand.

_________________

He might also really like some things to explore and play with in his space. I'll share my favorites below:

Bunnies like exporting type toys - a tunnel, cardboard houses, willow and hay balls, chews, and treat puzzles . The two thread below have examples:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Rabbits/comments/an8cut/rabbit_room_ideas/

https://www.reddit.com/r/Rabbits/comments/ajf2vl/how_to_enrich_my_rabbits_life/

​

Also a couple suggestions below that are my personal favorites and all buns tend to enjoy:

Treat/pellets ball - feed pellets in it vs a bowl

Nesting cups - hide little treat bits between stacked cups, I have not met a bun who doesn't love these

Plastic slinky - most buns love these

Play house

Dig box

Also try homemade things - the best I found was an empty egg carton stuffed with favorite greens for him to figure out how to open. :)

Or something like this https://www.reddit.com/r/Rabbits/comments/be338f/diy_pellet_dispenser/

​

Or a homemade castle like this person did https://www.reddit.com/r/Rabbits/comments/bcl9p4/cardboard_castle/ - she has instructions on how to make one, send her a message.

​

Lastly try teaching him tricks like here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke5N3tGLT_A - which is fun and a great way to bond with him.

u/ghost1667 · 14 pointsr/toddlers

my son loved these from 10 months onward. he's 3 now and still plays with them. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005C5H4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/UnicornToots · 12 pointsr/Mommit

While some don't fit your criteria, I'm a fan of many of the items from Fat Brain Toys. My daughter has the following from there:

  • Tobbles Neo - She loves this thing!

  • pipSquigz

    Her other basic, non-musical, not-very-themepark-ish toys are (and some you mention you have, but still...):

  • Oball - These are extremely easy for babies of all ages to hold. Everything from Oball is fantastic.

  • Wood Hammer Set

  • Classic stacking rings

  • Classic stacking cups

  • A crap ton of wood puzzles

  • Classic wood shape-sorter

  • Counting Caterpillar

    But, honestly, my daughter grows out of things pretty quickly. She has fallen in and out of love with her toys repeatedly. She also loves music, so as much as I wish she would just like the silent, simple toys... she thrives most and has the most fun with things that are loud and musical. I hate everything Vtech, but she could dance for days if given the opportunity... so as a parent, sometimes I suck it up and realize that despite whatever toys I wish or think she should have, she finds other things more enjoyable (especially as she became a toddler had had true opinions on things).

Baby stacking cups! The First Years Stack Up Cups https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00005C5H4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_F9lQCbYCFTKWN

u/uwjames · 8 pointsr/personalfinance

People will want to buy things for the baby. Some are useful things, many are not. What you really want is gift cards - Walmart, Target, your local grocey store, etc...

Do not fall into the trap of buying every toy, gadget, and outfit you can for your baby. The time your baby spends with her mother or you (or best of all, both of you together) is infinitely more valuable than any toy. This seems obvious to me, but then again I see so many families who are obviously broke but still have bought a lot of nice stuff for their kids. They don't need nice stuff, they need you. And they need you to have the money to fix the car when it breaks down, or to get through lean times when the next recession hits. I have a baby girl BTW, and her favorite toy is these nesting cups I got for $4.

Hopefully the mom will understand this too.

Minimalism is becoming a pretty popular idea, even among people who could afford to buy all the stuff. Here are some articles you might want to read:

https://redandhoney.com/crunchy-minimalist-baby/

https://littlehouselovelyhome.com/minimalist-baby-checklist/

https://www.theminimalistmom.com/minimalist-guide-to-baby/

https://theartofsimple.net/8-essentials-for-a-newborn-baby/

Whatever stuff you decide to buy, see about finding it on craigslist or local mommy groups on facebook before buying it new.

Other advice: If you haven't started this already, start going with the mom to every doctors appointment. The more supported she feels the better for everyone. Also the more informed about the medical side of things you are, the better for everyone. Follow the doctors advice. Go for walks with your baby's mom. Walks are a good way to bond and a perfect exercise for pregnant moms. The fitter she is when she goes into delivery the better for everyone and for your budget.

Last thing: Hopefully your baby's mom is enthusiastic about breast feeding. It's not easy for all women. That's why hospitals have lactation specialists. Breast milk is the best food for a baby up to 6 months, and beyond that they should still be able to nurse as they transition to solid foods. Breast milk is also free. Go to the store and check out prices on formula and baby food - it's expensive stuff, especially if you want the organic stuff.




u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/Rabbits

Cardboard boxes with shredded paper, pieces of cardboard, paper towel rolls, and some hay stuffed inside with a tunnel attached is by far my buns' favorite toys. They love going in and ripping everything apart and finding hay/treats to eat. Bunnies love cardboard boxes in general. They'll rip them apart and move them around, chew on 'em, make hidey holes, climb on them. I'll even cut out some holes on the side of the boxes and stuff cardboard tubes frayed at the ends/stuffed with hay for them to have fun with.

Tunnels rank at number 2 favorite toy. Their favorite is the crinkley cat tunnels which have holes throughout them they can dart out. They like the crinkle noise too.

They love manipulating objects, hard plastic slinkies (not metal ones!) are fun for them ... and to watch, haha. Hard plastic baby rattles, baby keys, etc. Just no gel/soft plastic as it would be easy for them to bite and ingest.
http://wabbitwiki.com/wiki/Toys_and_Games This has an awesome list of toys and also places to buy bun toys. I've bought cottontail cottages, activity tables, rosewood activity trees, etc--buns love them all! But they are expensive for sure. The activity tables last forever but it would definitely be cheaper to build one !

Oh, also--I would recommend games like the Teach N Treat for mental stimulation as well: http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-Living-World-Teach-Treat/dp/B004HYW9B8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393474030&sr=8-1&keywords=teach+n+treat

There are tons of dog and cat games like that too that buns will love: http://www.amazon.ca/Trixie-4594-Products-Solitaire-White/dp/B0057G1WT0/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3EH8O533V5DMS&coliid=I346NPTH7GATHZ

Also they love moving around these treat balls when you stuff em with pellets: http://www.amazon.com/Smarter-Toys-Treat-Inches-Colors/dp/B003ARUKTG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1393474058&sr=8-2&keywords=treat+ball

They love games that have anything to do with eating/end result being eating. :P

http://www.amazon.ca/Kitty-Mansions-Memphis-Tree-Beige/dp/B0043Z0EUE/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3EH8O533V5DMS&coliid=IHU58PNBHRME6 CAT TREES! Build your own if you want! Make sure if you buy one to cover any non-safe bun material.

I also got them one of these: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0038B2EKM/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00005C5H4/ref=oh_details_o02_s05_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Stack cups! Put treats between them and watch them knock them over and nom the treats. :)

http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00000IZQP/ref=oh_details_o04_s01_i05?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They also like knocking these off.

http://www.amazon.ca/Super-Pet-Tropical-Fiddle-Stick/dp/B000HHO26E/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3EH8O533V5DMS&coliid=I1Y9U0EEWOMV8N These things!

http://www.amazon.ca/Ware-711-Roller-Assorted-Colors/dp/B001CQFDJY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3EH8O533V5DMS&coliid=I3D5TZDNHU5HM8 This makes eating hay a bit more fun for them. :)

My boys love rolling around and destroying these: http://www.amazon.ca/Peters-Woven-Grass-Play-Ball/dp/B0009YJ3OG/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=3EH8O533V5DMS&coliid=I2VYO2771IW0LJ

Bunnies really enjoy long-term projects, which is why they like the dig boxes I described in the first paragraph so much. They dig and rearrange the boxes foreeever until I make a new one for them.

u/baileyfaze · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

YAYS:

Chux pads, hands down, were the best purchase we made. Those saved us so much laundry and so many diapers. The link is hit or miss - one box we got was great and quilted, the second box was not quilted and they fall apart more easily. Which really sucks because we're not going through several a day anymore, so it has time to really fall apart before it gets soiled. Even the shitty ones are incredibly helpful.

A Haakaa breast milk catcher. Best money I've ever spent. I stopped using it every day at 11 months PP. 11 months of daily use.

An electronic nail file. I cut too close once, and decided I don't ever want to do that again. It's quiet, it has a little light on it, two speeds, and a bunch of different nail heads.

Stacking cups. Don't know why we even have other toys. Did you know you can throw them and chase after them and then throw them again, mom? You can put them inside each other! You can put them in the toy basket and then take them out and then put them back in again! You can knock them down when mom & dad foolishly stack them up! You can clack them together! You can bang them against EVERYTHING!!

This inflatable tub. It has a little shoehorn for the crotch so you can use it before baby can totally sit up by themselves. We're still using it because my child is dead set on committing suicide in the bathtub.

Sleeved bibs. Or as we like to call them, eatin' ponchos. We got some "art smock" cheaper ones to alternate with, but the Bumkins one is 👌👌👌 so much better. The art smocks are fabric-y on the body, so they stain.

A ring sling. No link because I actually borrowed from my local babywearing community. But I checked out a ring sling back to back to back. My chonker outgrew the Moby wrap I had (which was super hot and a PITA to get on and off) by 3 months when I finally discovered ring slings. Ring slings are like the cool, breezy older sister.

A yoga ball. We spent hours bouncing our child.

NAYS:

This Graco Swing. Well, any swing, but this is the one we had. Of the several swings at daycare, my baby tolerated one kind...for a few minutes. Obviously this is a my baby thing.

A walker. We got one used from a garage sale before we realized they're not really recommended for babies anymore.

Any chew-toy specific type teether.

u/StillNotMyName · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

Teethers like this

My son (5 months) loves this toy, but I don't see a listing for just one on Amazon

Stacking cups or rings

Shape sorter

Hape toys are well loved in our house too. They've got some nice ones for all ages, and are almost always (always?) wooden toys.

My daughter giggled for hours watching Weebles just wobbling on the table.

u/Mullberries · 3 pointsr/Rabbits

Try giving your bun stacking cups or baby keys. They LOVE to throw things, and stacking cups or baby keys are something they can easily throw.

We got a set of stacking cups from amazon . We used them to stack and keep his interest during tummy time, and I shit you not these 3 dollar plastic cups are STILL his favorite toy. He’s a year old now. But he can stack them, put them inside each other, he puts blocks in them and carries them around. He throws them and discovers gravity. He hides goldfish and Cheerios in them. He uses them in the tub. Puts them in the toilet.

Best purchase ever.

u/knitpixie · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

Mine will be 7 months old the day after Christmas and I'm asking for:

  • Sleepers in 12 and 18M
  • Board books
  • Walker - Not for walking really, more for the things on it.
  • Poppin Pals - A classic!
  • Stacking Cups
  • Textured Balls
  • Wooden Car

    My in-laws are getting us a convertible car seat. We are picking out the one we want and they're ordering it. Memberships would be good too! We have an aquarium close by that would be a good place to go when it's rotten outside. Which is pretty much all summer here!
u/a-moo_point · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/waxler9311: I don’t know you yet but happy Thursday! Hope it’s a good one!

Here’s my add on item: The First Years Stack Up Cups https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00005C5H4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_0cpVAbZ5TZENQ. Any excuse to play with my son :)

u/goosiebaby · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

So we found that the high chair we got for home use (a Graco one) leans back too far and doesn't give our son a good foot rest. I'm a big Feeding littles fan and if I went back in time, I'd un-get this high chair. Last week we switched to using his portable one (a fisher price). He's been eating much better since we made the switch. In our case, no chair at the grandparents or the uncle we visited so it's def been worth it for us. Plus it's now essentially our main chair. If you plan to do many visits beyond just your parents over the next 2-3 years, it's probably worth it. You could also look at a more portable style that you could take to restaurants. Our son is 15 months and restaurant ones are not great for him yet.

Cups! he used these so much as he was learning to crawl. We'd stack a tower and he'd scoot to knock it down! Throws them all over now. Best $2 I've ever spent. ETA I see they are $4 now but still worth it.

u/BigOldNerd · 2 pointsr/Gifts

"The First Years Stacking Up Cups"

Probably violating rule 1 as it's not unique by any stretch of the imagination and to adult eyes they look exceedingly lame, but you can stack em and they are great at bath time. They were used for years and years in my household.

https://www.amazon.com/First-Years-Stacking-Up-Cups/dp/B00005C5H4

This is as direct a link as I can find.

u/SaraFist · 2 pointsr/Parenting

Books, books, books! My babies love(d) Look, Look! (three year old loves "reading" it to his brother), Black & White, Art Cards, the Babyfaces series (esp Hugs and Kisses and Smile!. The World Snacks series is also great; they're bright, (mostly) well-written, and not irritating. Plus, My toddler still loves them, and we started reading them to him when he was three months. I like Yum Yum Dim Sum and Let's Nosh! best. Indestructables are great for babies who eat books. And the Leslie Patricelli books have been a huge hit around here since toddlerdude was a wee baby.

Don't forget non-board books good for reading, such as a Mother Goose (there are also "chunky" ones that are kid-safe), Beatrix Potter, The Wind in the Willows, or even Shel Silverstein.

Toys for this age that I like are sensory balls, music makers, rattles (we had to buy two of those because wee babydude likes it so much), stackers, links, these bead things (a large, four-sided activity cube is gold for this age through toddler hood--like this), stacking cups, and baby's first blocks. We have veriations on all of these (or the exact one listed), and they are popular with both our three year old and the eight month old.

u/beegma · 2 pointsr/Mommit

I have 2 boys as well as working in child development. For a high chair I would recommend one that you can strap into a regular chair and also has a removable tray, for example. You don't need the straps (they get super dirty). I cut the straps off my space saver high chair and threw them away. For toys I would recommend the basics and stay away from plastic and things with small removable parts. Get wooden blocks, a cloth ball, a simple [doll](https://www.amazon.com/Fisher-Price-Brilliant-Basics-Babys-First/dp/B0015KTV2C0, stacking cups, ring stack. Babies also like to rummage through things and bang on things, so clear out a floor level kitchen cabinet of all the things she can't have (cleaning materials, food, etc) and fill it back up with pots/pans/large spoons. Let her go to town pulling everything out and banging it together. Obviously, when she's gotten to the stage where she can open and go through a cabinet on her own - then it's time to baby proof ALL the things.

u/InannasPocket · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

My 7 month old goes nuts for: Tupperware (especially lids), the forbidden delights of carpet fuzz, the straps on anything, and tags (her tag blanket is only so so, she prefers actual tags).

As far as "official" toys go, she likes these soft blocks, plastic stacking cups (she doesn't actually stack them yet), a weird buzzing teether thing like this, Sophie the Giraffe, and the book "Everywhere Babies".

u/Hahapants4u · 2 pointsr/Parenting

16 MO here too. Some of this ideas might be repeats, but I think the key is LO can’t keep entertained for that long, their attention span just isn’t that long.

  • mega blocks
  • sorting cups (big hit right now)
  • something physical (a slide. Climbing on and off the couch, etc)
  • story books
  • music (singing and dancing)
  • interactive books (flap books or music playing)
  • rolling a car around
  • walking around outside / exploring

    These are some things I don’t do, but know they do often at daycare
  • coloring with washable markers
  • ‘painting’
  • ‘sensory bins’ (put toys and other different textured things in a plastic tub and fill it with water, sand, or pasta)
  • play outside on a small jungle gym
  • sharing circle (might be tough with 2 people but works on sharing)


    Edit
    I forgot playing ‘clean up’.
u/BlueJeansAndPearls · 1 pointr/Rabbits

I will certainly post a video this weekend, keep an eye open for it, the bunny in that video is my beloved Gerry, who I lost last year sadly. I hate to admit I need help figuring out how to do it, my friend is going to help me with the video and pictures this weekend. Bunny Approved is one of my favorite sites for fun bunny brain challenges. Some of the same toys can be found cheaper on amazon though, I just do price checks before final purchase. My Bugs was much better at advanced puzzles(Sorry Gerry). The baby stacking cups are exactly these https://www.amazon.com/First-Years-Stacking-Up-Cups/dp/B00005C5H4?th=1 although Gerry's were a different colors. Both bunnies enjoy that one, and its an easy one to start with, in my experience. No matter what I tried, I just tried to make sure they were having fun, I never forced them to do something they didn't seem to like. I hope that helps! Would love to see some pics/videos of your mad genius too!

Edit: Amazon link appeared to show personal info.

u/MrsStickMotherOfTwig · 1 pointr/Parenting

My favorite site to go to for gift lists seems to be down, but we used gift cards from family/friends to get some things for my toddler from it. If you have an idea what your friend's kid has already, maybe some of these will work:

u/Pastafarian8 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Just a heads up in case you are clueless like I was: babies don’t really play with toys until they are like 10 months old. Or older. Sure, maybe they will like to chew on something or look at a mobile before then but that is pretty much all you need. The world around them is so stimulating, they don’t need extra “stuff”. Also half the toys I bought my now toddler she has 0 interest in, even tho I read reviews and bought things popular with other people’s kids. :p I would wait til your kiddo is older and you can get a sense of what they might enjoy.

If you must get something buy these stacking cups and some sort of teething toy. And maybe a baby gym altho my kid was never really into that either.
https://www.amazon.com/First-Years-Stack-Up-Cups/dp/B00005C5H4

ETA: oh yes, and some plastic links and a cheap baby rattle.

u/dulin · 1 pointr/daddit

At 12 months, my son's favorite gift was a 8 inch playground ball that he could knock around, chase, and throw. 4 months later he still plays with it all the time.

Nesting cups like these became my son's other favorite when he got them at 13 months.

u/LBluth21 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My 18 month olds have started to love that book, so I don't think the age range is necessarily wrong. You're giving a gift for the whole year of 1-2. Plus I just love the concept and how fun it is for parents too.

But the toy my twins are most obsessed with is honestly the simple stuff like this stacking cup set. Our nanny who has worked in infant centers for years got them a set (and some stacking boxes) and it is by far what they play with more than any fancier toys. Sometimes boring stuff is good too ;)
