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.

Feed the Ducks

You might be surprised at how delighted your baby is by this activity. Find the local lake, river, stream or pond where some ducks like to hang out and you have instant entertainment. Be eco-friendly and skip the bread. Instead bring frozen peas, lettuce or cut up grapes (which your tot could "share" with the ducks) to feed them. If your baby didn't know how to quack before this adventure, we bet she will soon! Bonus: springtime means, you might even see some adorable ducklings.
