Nature versus Nurture

By Inside Columbia

After more than a year of being stuck at home, parents are finally venturing out and socializing with other adults. Babies certainly need quality time with their mothers and fathers — but they also need it with Mother Earth. And if there’s one thing every parent appreciates, it’s multitasking.

Take your cue from our models, Brad and James Johnson (2 ½ years), Madison and Reese Loethen (18 months) and Olivia and Josie DeSmit (3 months), who enjoyed walking at Stephens Lake Park. Babywear and strollers, such as the Ergobaby and BOB featured in this article, can help make spending time outside with your children more convenient and enjoyable — in other words, less of a headache and backache. So, what are you waiting for? Treat yourself to a new outdoor spring outfit and hit the park, or trail, with your little one(s)!
