Week By Week Activities for Newborns - Montessori Baby Week 12

Now that Teddy has hit 12 weeks, I wanted to do a little activity recap from his time as a newborn. Sometimes it can feel like we have to do so much with our babies, but I don't want it to feel like this with this list. This was just one thing we did that week. The majority of the time, Teddy spent nursing, sleeping, and snuggling. 

Also, looking at this list, don't think he only did these activities that week. Many are on going even now. The time indicates when I introduced the activity, not the duration of the work. Remember too, this is Teddy's timeline! Your child might have different interests, skills, or timetable.

This is great. I'm new to Montessori and get overwhelmed with what to do with my baby and at what time etc.. you always show things don't have to get too complicated. Thank you for the great post.
