keeping newborn entertained

Now that LO is staying awake longer I am talking and singing to her more. However, I kind of feel bad leaving her just laying there in her rock n play for long stretches, after all she sleeps there at night. Don't get me wrong,I do hold her, take her for walks, try her in her swing(which she lasts about 5 min) but what do you do with LO when you are doing stuff around house and he/she is wide awake? Maybe I am overthinking it but I just wanted to check in to get an idea of what you are doing with LO.

  • Wear your baby.  Keeps your hands free but let's baby be with  you for those things you need to get done around the house.

    I thought about that but didnt know if an Ergo is too much inside. LO is in newborn insert etc and I was afraid she'd get hot,etc.

    I don't use the ergo.  We have one, but it feels bulky on me.  I prefer to just use a wrap.  I've got 4.5-5 yards of fabric and I wrap her up on me with that.
  • I played a lot of music and sang along.  Or if I was reading a book, I would read some of it out loud to the baby.

    You'll never know unless you try it.

  • I use the ergo around usually for about 1-2 hours during the day. Sometimes I do worry that LO is hot in there, but she loves it.
  • I'm jealous, my LO refuses to be put down when she's awake. She screams bloody murder so I wear her in the K'tan around the house.

  • I too feel bad leaving a wide awake LO alone to do his own thing, but sometimes you need a few minutes. I actually think our little guy is happiest when laying in his crib looking at his mobile. He will lay in there forever just cooing away. I think it's fine :)
