What's your daily routine?

Hi There,

I'm still fairly new to being a mom. My baby is 7.5 months. Some days, I worry that I don't have enough activities for her. We go for walks. We do tummy time with different toys. We have a few activity centers. We read. She eats. She naps. A few times per week, we go on errands.

What else should we be doing? I guess I feel like there's so much downtime, and I second guess myself a lot because I've never done this before!!! Also, I don't play with her very much. Should I be? If yes, what should we do together? I feel like so much of what she does at this stage is on her own, with me in the same room, doing my own housework or work work.

Oh, and she goes to daycare 2X per week, so she gets to be with other babies while she's there.

I read to DH. I also do things like set a row of toys and let him pick what he likes. Put toys inside a clear box flipped upside down and let him figure out how to open it. We dance and listen to music.

Sounds to me like you're doing great! Babies don't need much and you're giving little one lots of learning, play time imo. Good job mama!
