I have a 5mo boy that I SAH with and I just wanted to see what other parents did with their LO around this age. Most days I feel like I'm not doing enough and he cries out of boredom. He can sit, pull himself up to standing (he's very proud of this), he can roll over, push up and turn, raking grasps, babbles.
I'm looking into starting Montessori or Waldorf activities soon, but not sure where to start.
Almost every day:
Read him books
Floor time with his toys
- Likes playing with a few toys that are in a small box
Sitting/Playing in front of mirror
Sitting in bumbo or bouncer with toys
Playing with dog (his favorite)
Sing him songs
I wear him during a few chores
We go for a walk outside
We get out of the house to go to store or YMCA 1x/day
We'll be starting BLW soon
Can't wait for the summer to get outside more!
Momma to a weaning nursling DS1 (8/10) and expecting #2 (EDD 9/12). DS1 currently Milk, Soy, Egg, Peas, Peanut, & Tree Nut Free (hives/vomiting).
DD is 6 months old now and I basically do the same you do! She doesn't have a bouncer though and we mostly use her bumbo seat when she eats. I rarely plan anything ahead, I just go with the flow. She is not very demanding activity-wise.
