Dad tip #105: Sometimes it's cool to just hang out with the baby

The title of this post isn't quite descriptive enough for me to get my point across. What I'm trying to say is, that while trying to keep your baby stimulated all the time is admirable, sometimes the best thing for your baby is to just hang out with him.

With your baby's happiness on your mind, it's easy to get caught in a loop where you're constantly taking your baby from activity to activity, from station to station, but sometimes all your baby needs is your company. In fact, we've found that one of our baby's favorite things is to just lay on the floor with me on one side and my wife on the other.

Give it a try ... it's also relaxing for you if your baby likes it.
