What does everyone do with newborns when they are awake? I am a FTM with a sweet little 7 week old, as she is starting to stay awake for longer stretches Im not quite sure what to do to keep her occupied/ entertained. We read stories, she goes on her play mat, she's not a fan of her swing or being in the moby wrap for long periods of time. I am constantly talking or singing to her but I still run out of things to do, Its so cold where we live right now so going outside is not much of an option.
