Itty bitty narcissist
Need to keep baby occupied for an hour or two? A small shatterproof mirror should do the trick. Baby loves looking at his own reflection — only to him, it seems like another baby is starting back at him! Believe it or not, playing with his own reflection actually helps him learn about communicating with others. He'll also start rolling from side to side pretty soon, so make sure not to let him out of your sight (especially when he's on the changing table).
[tip] If baby's having trouble napping, try putting him in a sling carrier and walking around the house. The movement and closeness will help baby relax and give you a little workout.
