Say goodbye to winter and hello to warmer sunny days by spending more time outside with your newbie. Even if your baby isn’t walking yet, or still prefers to snuggle close to you in a carrier, taking her out on the town to experience new and different places is beneficial. And just as important, it’ll be beneficial to you, too. Here are ten spots to visit this spring.

Talk to the Animals at the Zoo

Even some of the youngest babies can enjoy a trip to the zoo. Strap them in a front carrier so they can get a great view of the lions and tigers and bears. Get ready for giggles, pointing and plenty of smiles. If your zoo has a petting zoo, you're in for even more squeals of delight.

What spring adventure did you and your baby go on first? Share your stories below.
