Stimulating baby

With an infant that sleeps eats and pottys most of the time what can you do to stimulate them while they are alert and awake? We have enjoyed putting her in the boppi and listening to pandoras Einstein kids music, other ideas?

Re: Stimulating baby

  • Just let her eat and a sleep. At this age, newborns don't really need "stimulation" as you're describing. Nursing/eating and cuddling are actually all the forms of stimulation they need. Too much other stimuli can be overwhelming. You'll know when it's time to bring in more play time (like when she's staring at you after a feeding like, "now what??" lol)

  • We would sing and hold his hands and read lots of books, talk about the day, etc. Now that LO is a bit older, he is much more alert during awaketime. He now enjoys the bouncy chair with dangling toys to look and swat at... and he has a play mat same thing with the toys. I still read and sing a ton when he's awake.

    This. I also talk to my baby a lot when he's awake.
