Bonding | UrbanDaddies

By: Urbandaddies  09-12-2011

The first year of your baby’s life is such an exciting time. There are so many changes and discoveries in store for them and you. From their first smile, to their first steps get ready to be amazed by your little one.

Being a parent really is the best thing in the world. Some of the best moments come from events and activities that you can plan and participate in with your children. Getting out with your family is a great opportunity to socialize with other families and children, not to mention a day out on the town usually means a little less clean up at home!

UrbanDaddies believes and supports all the benefits of reading to your baby. Aside from the amazing bonding experience, research on infant brain development tells us that babies who are talked to, sung to and read to by their caregivers exhibit language skills greater than those children who received little verbal stimulation. A child’s experience in the first three years of life directly impacts their later development and learning. So, snuggle up, pick up a book and give your child the gift of a lifetime.

Children need to learn through play to develop imagination, creativity and grow intellectually and emotionally. Urban parents can play a huge role in this. Here are some play ideas for a rainy day.

Travel with a baby is never easy. Here are some tips.
