When my 2 month old DS is awake I do spend time cuddling, talking, playing etc with him but I feel guilty when I leave him sitting and gazing around the place when I have to get up and do things. Do you feel the same and is it ok to leave them to just gaze around? I try to talk out loud so he can hear what I'm doing I.e if I'm in the kitchen and he's in the lounge.

Do you give 100% undivided attention to your baby the whole time they're awake?

I do when i have to do the dishes,laundry,cook,etc. but i keep her near me and keep passing by her, talking to her so she knows mummys around.
dont feel guilty..while your DS is looking aroung he is observing everything. and your talking to him even when not next to him which is great as he'll learn that even when he cant see you,he know your nearby .

I'm much the same with my 4 month old. I keep up an almost constant natter so that she knows I am around, but I think that some quiet time also let's her process all the new sensory experiences she is being subjected to. I stop talking when it's time to sleep. We also have ABC Classic FM on throughout the house during the day to immerse her in some good music. She likes to waltz!

As long as you come when he calls, it's fine.

It is absolutely fine
If it makes you more comfortable maybe you could put bub in a bouncer in the room you are in - this is what i did so bub was near me but i could do other things like wash dishes etc.

I probably shouldn't have said "100%". I just mean I feel guilty when I leave him sitting by himself....

Id either leave her near a window (more exciting then staring around out house) or I used to put her near me so i could chat with(at) her
Could be why she talks so much now
