Veronika has been home for ten days now, but today was the first time I took her on an official “tour” of the place!
Walking about the house is a great way to engage your newborn when he or she has an alert moment. Carry them slightly upright, and you can gently move them up high to see some things, and then gently swing them down low to see others. Make sure you are supporting baby’s neck and head firmly, and that they feel safe even with the movement.
Obviously this was another blog for which it was hard to get pictures (sorry for the slightly sideways pic at top!). But I loved talking Veronika through the house – things in the kitchen like fridges and sinks; pictures to look at on the walls in the bedrooms.
A very cute activity during our quiet morning together.
