And you will both enjoy spending hours out in the sunlight. You could even do a bit of gardening while you are outside with your newborn. Bring their seat outside, and then you can get some planting done while your child enjoys the outside air. Just make sure you put your child somewhere which they won’t be in direct sunlight. And ensure they are away from bugs while you are outside in the yard!
