Now that the older kids are back to school, it’s time to start coming up with activities to get out of the house (and reclaim your sanity!) with your infant or toddler.
As you’ve undoubtedly found already, going out and about with a baby in tow can be anything but relaxing! However, if you choose your destinations wisely, you’ll find many places around town that welcome parents and their small children.
You can explore the great outdoors, get a cuppa something refreshing, and introduce your little one to fun, age-appropriate activities and other children and parents, too.
