Take a Stroll.

It can be hard to find time to exercise with an infant. Taking a walk is a good way to get moving while doing something fun together.

  • Oxley Nature Center – Oxley has wide trails, making it a good option if you’re hiking with a stroller. Just be aware that trails can get muddy. oxleynaturecenter.org
  • Riverside – Tulsa’s River Parks boasts miles of divided trails. Cyclists can stay on one side and pedestrians on the other. There are plenty of shaded areas if you need to cool down. riverparks.org

Play Inside!

Whether you’re trying to beat the heat or avoid the freeze, here are some fun, temperature-controlled places to play.

 Sign Up for Swim Lessons.

Starting swim lessons early can help your baby acclimate to the water, so they are more comfortable with it later.

Sit for Storytime.

Encourage baby’s literacy development while socializing. Some of these events may be seasonal, so confirm details before heading to an event.

Celebrate Baby’s First Birthday.

When it’s time to celebrate this milestone event, you’ll need a special treat!
