activities for a 4mo???
« on: September 16, 2005, 07:16:32 am »
I know that Liam needs more stimulation in his awake time now, but I'm not sure what to do (4mo)

 when Aiden was this age,my dh was really sick, so he spent the 3.5 -5 mo period in Drs waiting rooms, Hospitals & in the care of other friends & family

I give him tummy time & floor time, time under the Gymini, we read stories, but I feel like he needs more stimulation as he is "eye tired" but started 45min naps.

my ds is 4 months old too.  we do the same kinds of things you do.  and walks, lots of walks.

i get lots of ideas from going to groups, two playgroups and a library group.  i like to watch the moms there and see what they are doing with their los.  also they let me know about even more activities (have just signed up for baby gymnastics! tee hee)

right now, i am happy to leave my darling son on the activity matt cuz he is trying to work out rolling over so i feel he is doing a pretty good job of setting his own agenda!

other people have shown me how to rough-house gently with Ethan and taught me different activities and songs.  and of course he spends time watching me cook and tidy.  i am certain that your lo is more stimulated by the world than you think, i bet you are doing a great job of providing him just enough activity
