Is It OK to Let My Baby Play Alone Sometimes?
Pick a safe place away from any hazards (cords, sharp corners etc.) and put baby down on a blanket. You can give her some toys—a lovey, a rattle, a block—to play with. Or you can just let her play with her hands and feet, stare up at the ceiling fan or practice making noises. Everything is new for your baby. She doesn't need a high level of stimulation to be utterly captivated. So if you need a sec to check your email, don't feel guilty. Put baby down and let her play! Just be sure to respond if she starts fussing!
