    I find they do the most learning on their own, like learning to crawl, roam, explore and be curious about their surroundings. I think their own play time is important.

    I leave Dd on her mat or in her bouncer playing with her toys while I do some housework. I'll chat to her etc or I'll put on some music.

    I'm trying not to let myself feel guilty about it (cause I do as well) and I just have to remind myself that she's content.

    We still do stories and songs and cuddles

    I balance one-on-one time with independent play. Focus on bub for 5, 10 or 15 min depending on age then leave them with a few toys or books and do my thing within earshot and visibility. Then I come back after 20/30/40min depending on the day and mood. Restart.
