Outdoor Play Benefits for Babies


Infants from birth to 1 year of age can get many benefits from spending a bit of time outdoors.

Some of these benefits include:

Stimulation of Their Senses 

In their first year of life, your baby will use all 5 of their senses to learn about their environment and the world around them.Spending time outdoors with your baby will give them an opportunity to use their sense of sight, smell, touch and hearing to explore the natural world.

Improve Overall Health 

Exposing your infant to small amounts of sunshine and fresh air can result in healthier infants, compared to babies who spend most of their time indoors.

Spending just a few minutes each day outside in the sun isn’t harmful for your baby and allows them to receive a nice dose of Vitamin D.

If you’re worried about exposing your baby to direct sunlight, then remember to consult a heath care professional.
