At 10 Weeks they tend to get bored quite a lot as they are at a sort of inbetween phase.

Can she hold her head up? If so something like a jumperoo or a door bouncer could be handy or just going out for a while each day might help smile

Baby Bjorn bouncy chair with toy bar, pop her in that & she can come round the house with you & watch what you're doing - having breakfast, making lunch, having a shower etc.

Carry her in a sling.

Textured linky toy; jingly bell toys.

YU Jumperoo as soon as she's old enough

pebblepots is right. My DS didn;t like jumperoo or any of that. Loved to be on kitchen table watching me cook or in sling. STill really short attention span - you get used to it!

Pop her in a sling so she can see you doing everything, she'll be much calmer.

Another vote for the bouncer chair. Sat in that, watching you potter on is usually quite entertaining for them. And walks outside too

Get one that's good at distributing the weight properly on your back! I have a Beko Gemini & I love it. I recommend a web site called Slingtastic, it was very helpful & the lady who runs it was happy to talk through options with me & send me a couple to try.

Yes definitely a sling. It was the only thing which kept DD1 happy.

Dd2 was quite content in a bouncy chair watching everyone, which was a relief after DD1.
