Summer is the perfect time to head outdoors, and your new baby will love to enjoy the sights and sounds of the natural world around them. The park is the perfect place to take your new baby so they can enjoy the sight of green trees and grass, the feel of a warm breeze, and the bright atmosphere of a local park. Depending on how old your baby is, there may even be park amenities they can enjoy, such as infant playground equipment like infant swings.

Go swimming for the first time:

Who doesn’t love to swim? When the weather warms up in the summer, it can be the perfect time to take your new baby for their first swim. If you have the time, consider signing your baby up for a baby swim class to help them get more familiar with the water.

Take a trip to the zoo

The zoo is a great summertime activity that will keep you and your baby occupied for hours. Taking your baby to the zoo for the first time is a great opportunity to let your baby see wild animals up close for the first time, while also providing both of you plenty of outdoor time in the warm summer air.

Explore a flower garden

Babies love colors and scents, and what better way to combine these two exploratory senses than a flower garden. Summertime is a great season to visit a flower garden, when the weather is nice and the flowers are in full bloom. If your baby is older, you can even create unique games such as pointing out all the flowers of a certain color--such as blue flowers, pink flowers, and so on.

Play in the sand at the beach

If your baby is old enough to sit up on their own, you can always take them to the beach in the summer. Playing in the sand for the first time can be an exciting experience as your baby learns how to touch and move sand around. They may even be able to make a simple sand castle with a bucket if they are old enough to grip one.

Whatever you plan to do with your new baby this summer, remember to follow common sense summer safety rules. Always apply baby-friendly sunblock and make sure that your baby is wearing a hat as well as other cover-ups to make sure they aren’t exposed to the harmful UV rays from the sun.
