Floor play can be one of the most developmentally stimulating activities for your baby!
You’ll notice that your baby loves lying on their back and reaching for hanging mobiles and toys above them. It’s a very stimulating activity, and seems like a good opportunity to give baby some quiet time, and leave baby alone to have some extra time to yourself and finally catch up on work.
But before running off, consider spending some extra time playing with your baby, because before you know it, they’ll have outgrown this activity. Playing with baby on the floor can help mental and physical development. Playing on the floor is the perfect time to play tickle games and give your little one lots of love and little kisses and raspberries. There’s honestly nothing more rewarding than getting your baby to laugh!
Playing together on the floor is a great opportunity to strengthen the bond you have with your baby, too.
If you have a pretty “easy” and independent baby, it’s probably tempting to leave them on the floor with their toys for hours on end while you get a few things done around the house. But the time you spend playing with your baby is priceless, and their emotional and physical health really depends on this relationship early on. Of course, there is more to life than just your baby and it is important to take time for yourself, so try to find a good balance.
A baby can be so much work sometimes that parents can forget to just stop and have fun. Floor play gives you some much-needed playtime with baby. Setting aside all your cares for an hour a day and just having fun with your baby will relieve stress and troubles, and make you a happier, more relaxed parent.
The parent-child relationship is just like any other relationship. You both get back what you put into it. By spending time playing with your baby daily, you are building trust and a bond that will last a lifetime.
