What can I do to entertain my 5 month old?
Welcome! There are lots of fun things you can do for a 5 month old. Try a few of these ideas and I hope other people add some too!
-Sing songs and bounce baby on your knee
-Lay on a blanket with the lights out and shine a flashlight on the ceiling - it's fun for your baby to track the light
-Lay on a blanket with a mirror and make faces together
-Read books together
-Any toys that make music or are good activity toys
-Go on walks and talk about what you see outside
Hope this helps a bit!
For a 5 month old baby, you are their best toy.
Sing nursery rhymes
Play patty cake
Tickle and roll around together
Talk him for a walk in the park
Take him to see the animals at the zoo
Swing in a hammock with him
My favorite is to lay on the bed with baby and just do whatever silly thing you can to make baby laugh. I currently have a five month old, my third, and our time bouncing on the bed together is some of the most precious time I have! Enjoy!
Thank you to all, the suggestions really worked. I found that if I read out loud to Jayden, he seems to be quite happy. Also, he is rolling over and lifting himself which he could do for minutes at a time.
