We don’t have to tell you that being a parent is really hard work! But it’s also hard being a baby—after all, you’re just starting to comprehend the world around you. We can’t say enough about the importance of quiet time to allow you and baby to take a much-needed breather from the hubbub of the day.
There are loads of low-key things to do—maybe put on some calming music and explore a room with baby, quietly pointing out different objects and saying the names slowly, or take a walk and introduce baby to interesting objects in the natural world, such as leaves or flowers. These ideas may seem overly simple, but don’t forget that any type of relaxing, loving interaction strengthens the bond between you and your child.
