..tiny baby activities?
Okay so maybe this is a silly post.. but I am a new Mama, stick with me :)
I googled "newborn baby activities" yesterday because I already feel like when Monroe is awake and happy.. he's bored! ha! I want to keep him awake during the day as much as I can and active.. so he is tired at night.. but I was unsure of ideas of what to do with him.. I found putting him on his play mate is fun.. for awhile, haha! Plopping him in his bouncer is great.. he even eventually falls asleep.. He hates just hanging in his bassinet solo.. starts to fuss easily.. I also read just sitting with them while watching TV, reading to them and carrying them around the house is great just for stimulation.. can you Mamas think of anything else?
Note it's SUPER cold right now where we live.. if I could go on a walk I would.. but it's like below 20* around here.. (insert cries) :)
I use to sing to my babies, read to them, just talk to them like I was talking to anyone else, especially when they would sit in their bouncy seat while I worked in the kitchen. I'd tell them what I was doing etc. No they don't answer but it's stimulating for them. Do you play music for him? You could introduce different genres of music to him as that is stimulating to the brain.
