During tummy time, try giving your child a boost in order to become more mobile. Roll up a towel and place it behind your child's feet. Support the feet as your child begins to inch forward. This activity will encourage your child to 'creep' forward and achieve greater mobility.
Water play is a wonderful sensorial experience for your child. Bring simple toys for your child's bath today. Use toys your child can grasp, (like a plastic measuring cup). Observe what your child does with the toys. Exploration is an important part of your child's development.
Walking involves balance and your child may be getting ready. Each child will find balance when it is time. A child needs a sturdy bar or piece of furniture to pull up to an upright position. It is important for you to be satisfied with your child's own timetable for walking or crawling. If possible, try putting a child safe mirror on a wall in your child's room (about 48" by 30"). Attach a smooth hard maple rod to the mirror. The rod needs to be 17" from the floor. This allows your child to be able to pull up and move sideways, hand over hand, foot over foot, without the help of an adult.
