My baby is just about 4 months old and I've been home with him since birth..I am going back to work in August he will be bout 6 months..He constantly has to have me in front of him to play...I tried putting him in play gym with toys bouncy seat with toys on the floor with mirror and things ( since he's trying to roll over) even the swing. I try to switch it up so he does not become too bored and after awhile I do go and play with him. I try to do this so I can get things done around the house and also he will be going to daycare in a couple months. When there they will not be able to sit in front of him the whole day sooo I am trying to get him to get used to playing SOMEWHAT by himself. I do realize they cant self play that much at this age! Im also trying to get him used to different things like swing and such that he doesnt really like. Is he okay if im doing things around the house and i sit him somewhere such as swing or bouncy seat! I cannot carry him or play with him ALLLLL day long..I think he's old enough to play somewhat!
