While the birth of a new baby might make it harder to find time to watch your favorite sports team play, your passion for your team surely hasn’t died down. If you’re a sports fanatic, then you likely are excited to prep your little one to be indoctrinated into the world of sports including liking every single team you do. Even your little soon-to-be fan can express their team spirit! Here are three ways you can help your baby have a part in all the fun.
Dress Them in Fanware
From baby hockey jerseys to pacifier sets displaying your favorite football team, there are fanware baby items for every occasion. Apart from looking undeniably cute in a football jersey or in a cheerleader dress, your little one will have the chance to display their favorite team (that is until they can choose for themselves). You can even have the whole family get dressed up in matching outfits and take some unique family pictures!
Design a Sporty Nursery
Another fun way to let your baby enjoy the joy of sports with everyone else is to design them a nursery with a sports theme. You can choose to go with a generic sports theme, or you can go all out and decorate their room with the colors and symbol of your team. There are many ideas online that can help you get started!
Take Them to a Game
While watching TV isn’t recommended for children under the age of two, one great way to let your baby experience the thrill of the game is to take them with you to watch one in person! While the age of your baby will determine how much they will get out of the experience, there will be plenty of new sights, sounds, and smells for them experience! Just make sure to stay in the shade if it’s sunny out, bring plenty of snacks and toys, and try to find a location where noise will be at a moderate level.
