How To Spend Mother’s Day with Your New Baby
It’s your first Mother’s Day. Congrats! What should you do to celebrate with your growing family? If you’re a new mommy, check out theses easy (and fun) parent-baby ideas to mark this very special day.
Day at the Park
Pack the diaper bag, nestle baby in the stroller and spend an afternoon together at a nearby park. Even though baby isn’t ready for a picnic lunch, you can bring your own lunch.
If you’re looking for an at-home option that allows you to spend quality time with your kiddo, a baby-mommy story time is it. Pick a colorful picture book, find a comfy corner and read together. Don’t worry about your baby understanding the words yet. The key here is to spend time together and enjoy the bonding experience.
Explore the world of art with your older infant! Make edible finger paints, using favorite baby foods, apple sauce or other spreadable options. Finder paint onto large canvases or pieces of poster board. Not only is this a together-time activity to try on Mother’s Day, but it’s also a way for your baby to learn through their senses. Get in on the artsy action yourself, helping your baby to ‘paint’ with the edible options.
