Everyone loves snuggling a sleeping baby, but some of us feel at a loss as to how to interact with our little bundle of joy when he is awake. I want to talk and interact with my baby...but what do I say? Maybe you have memories of silly songs and fingerplays your mom did with you but can't remember them exactly.
If you are looking for new ways to engage your newborn then you should check out Baby Gym Books. There are four different board books in this series from Child's Play.
Each book has 4-7 different activities to do with your child. They usually involve a song or nursery rhyme as well as the actions and illustrations of parents and babies doing the activities. The ideas are very simple, but they are good for when you feel like you are staring at your baby with nothing to say!
