Get Up And Dance With Your Baby!

Have you ever found yourself wondering what the heck to do with a baby? Um, yeah, pretty sure we all have. Well, you’re in luck, because here’s an idea…                             

DANCE WITH YOUR BABY!

Don’t worry about feeling silly, your baby will more than likely LOVE it and I bet it will put you in a pretty good mood, too. Find your favorite groove – be it Wheels on the Bus – and get to work as your baby’s favorite dance partner.

As a new parent, the last thing on your mind may be dancing the night away, let alone finding the time to fit in a workout between diaper changes. Why not make dancing an activity you and your new baby can do together?

Tips on dancing with baby:

  • Keep your knees slightly bent, abs drawn in, neck relaxed
  • Avoid quick or jerky movements
  • Support a newborn’s head, neck and spine
  • Hold older babies with good neck control securely on your hip

Have you danced with your baby? What songs or music have you danced to? Please share!

  1. Dancing with babies is awesome! My son and I used to dance to an Irish group called Celtic Thunder. Now as an older toddler he still likes a dance party. My daughter loves music of any kind, so we spend most of our days dancing around. It’s great stimulation for them and a good workout for us!
