Your baby is 7 months old already, Wow! Your baby is currently in one of those phases where they are either sitting, standing, and maybe even walking. It is now more crucial than ever it’s for you as a dad to play with them during their playtime.
If you aren’t already, you can take them to different places show them around, exposing them to different environments like a grocery store, a shopping mall, a park, or even someone else’s house. They are going to be super excited and fascinated by the many different people and colours.
Now that they are eating solids in addition to either their mom’s breast milk or formula milk, as a dad, you gotta be able to prepared to get snacks prepped and ready. Your baby needs lots of snack and you need lots of caffeine to keep that energy level up to keep up with playtime.
For some parents, like my family, we enrolled our daughter to infant swim class. You might think its too early, but it allows the infant to enjoy playing in groups as well as it prefills your schedule with an activity, that way you dont have to come up with something new to do each time.
