  • My daughter is also into everything. That is how they learn. I don't think it's a bad thing. When you play just be very physical. My daughter loves super baby!

  • My daughter's the same way. Try having someone else hold her, I bet she'll look right at you! My husband and I pass her back and forth and laugh, because she will NEVER look at the person holding her. Be happy she's interested in the world around her... she knows your face and it gives her comfort... she just feels secure so she's exploring. Let her! :)

  • my son loves it when I lay on the couch. he pulls himself up and I am eye level with him. he smacks my face a lot but he gets such a kick out of it when I bat back at his hands. you can also lay on hte floor both my kids love to climb on me. just be very physical in general.
