Spring has arrived! You recently welcomed your little miracle and you are thinking now what do I do? According to the experts it is now time for new parents to get out of the house and go out into the world.

Once you have clearance from your pediatrician, parents should take their newborns out to break up the routine of feeding, changing and sleeping.  Going out can boost a parent’s morale, especially a first time parent by doing something new and different. Don’t forget to pack your camera to take those candid photos so you can share those memorable moments with family and friends.

How about going to a  movie? Some local movie theaters offer regularly scheduled adult movies that welcome little ones. To accommodate the sensory needs of babies, the theater lights remain dim and the volume stays at a moderate level.

Go visit some wildlife. Seeing animals is a great activity for a baby. Babies and parents, alike, adore staring into the aquatic wonderland of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. No strollers are allowed on the floor, so plan accordingly and bring your baby carrier.
