Hi I have a 4 mths baby boy and I m a full time mom. Before, I only had to feed him, change him and put him to sleep but now that he start moving around, being curious abt the surrondings, Im affraid that I m missing sth. when I put him in his swing to do smth he start staring at me, making noises to have my attention therefore, I feel guilty. P.S: he likes to play with me all the time and he s not very intresseted to his toys, he can with them only if Im with him or if he s in the car. thank youAnswer Question
Swings, bouncers, activity seats, ect. aren't that good of an idea. They may have their place and if the baby is really fussy all the time and something works then sometimes you have to go with what works. However, they are mama substitutes. For two of my children I didn't have anything like that. All I had was a car seat, a sling, and a carrier.
It's great to put your baby in a sling or carrier and go about your regular activities. You may want to plan your day to avoid crowds to keep stress levels low and decrease chance of illness. Go on outings to the park and places like the zoo. Talk and sing to your baby.
