At this stage of your baby’s life, he is beginning to understand that he has the ability to reach an object that is close to him through making eye contact, reaching his hand out, and rolling over. These videos will provide you with guidance in dealing with the change that your baby goes through with the start of independent movement forward, and the ability to move in space. In addition, with the help of these videos you will attain practical tools which will help you carry out different exercises that focus on development of the balance system, development of proper crawling, and coping with the beginning of independent movement on the floor, and away from the floor.
Your baby will experience two stages in their ability to move in a circle and around their own axis. This experience will begin as a passive one, and later on, become an active one. This exercise is a great way to spend quality time with your baby, while learning some new moves. In this video your baby will learn to move them self in all directions, while they move around their own axis. Your baby learns to develop their sense of direction in space out of developing a new found control of their own movement.
A really great way to spend some quality time with your baby is through a wonderful sensory exercise that familiarizes your baby with their feet. Through a comfortable series of touch and stimulation exercises, your baby will learn to feel, rest, and relax their feet, which will assist them in crawling, and all independent use of their feet in all upcoming developmental milestones. In this video we will learn how to familiarize your baby with their feet a bit better by stimulating their feet with touch, in order to send a message to their brain. Your baby learns that a sense of motion exists in their feet, which will guide them in their future development.
This is part 2 of “The Most Important Sensory Experience To Milestone Mastery”. In this video we will learn how to familiarize your baby with their feet a bit better by stimulating their feet with touch, in order to send a message to their brain. Your baby learns that a sense of motion exists in their feet, which will guide them in their future development. For the upcoming crawling stage, the foot-grasping reflex is de-activated from the body and your baby will learn to move their feet on their own accord.
In this process, your baby experiences the difference between the flat stable surface of the floor versus the instability of balancing on the ball. Your baby will now deal with a round and unstable surface – the ball, which requires them to balance themselves towards the center and move according to the ball’s motion. Your baby makes eye contact with stimuli around them and turns their head and body according to the stimulus. Bending your baby’s knee on the ball creates balance, while activating their balancing system, which will lead to organized and proper crawling in the future.
In this developmental stage your baby is already turning and starting to get to know how to move forward towards an object, while feeling different than they did up until now, feeling more independent. This exercise is also a fun game you can play with your baby to show and teach them how they can move around on their own, and reach you independently without having to rely on anyone. In this video your baby will get to know their ability to move forward and understand they have the ability to move in other directions, apart from to the side.
The following exercise is not only a great way to spend quality play-time with your baby, it is also a sure way to assist the development of your baby’s range of motion. Our baby learns that through the mobility of their chest and ribs, they will be able to reach the center of their body with their arms, put their hands in their mouth, create eye contact and grip, all of which lead our baby to success in crawling, sitting, standing and walking down the road.
When your baby sits on your lap, an inevitably unstable surface, you are actually unintentionally teaching them to balance them self while sitting, as well as exposing them to their ability to move to both of their sides. In this video your baby will learn to balance them self independently while sitting, without the need to rely on holding on to any external objects like your hands or pillows. When we are dealing with the development of your baby’s ability to balance, we also develop their eyes and ability to focus their sight.
At this stage, your baby has increased movement and gains better balance. In this exercise you will teach your baby to move more safely in space and to block losing their balance. You will do so by triggering your baby’s Parachute reflex. This process, completed through movement and startle, triggers the connection between information intake and response. When the information received shifts their head position, their balancing system pushes their hands to reach out for protection. In this video your baby will learn to reach out their hands in order to block falling when they lose their balance and the connection between information intake and response.
Communication is one of the key issues in your baby’s development and it’s important for you to know how to provide your baby with the correct stimuli to enable them to respond to our communication efforts, and to feel confident in expressing themselves. As your baby begins to move in space on their own, they begin to increasingly connect with their surroundings. In this video we will see how we as parents, can create the correlation for our baby, between their ability to communicate, and the way we address them. We will see how important your baby’s reaction is to the way you communicate with them. Should you speak to them as an adult? Play with your facial expressions? Baby-talk?…
At this stage, in the 9 to 12 month period, your baby can crawl on his belly and on his hands and knees. As he rises and crawls on his hands and knees, your baby begins to move towards independent sitting. Here, for the first time, your baby must use a narrower surface for balance, and he must learn to balance himself through his upper body. At this stage of sitting, your baby’s balance system and his ability to balance towards his body’s center becomes crucial. It allows him to detach his hands from the floor, and implement his fine motor skills more explicitly with clapping, eating independently, drawing, and more. In addition, you can see your baby’s first attempts to stand up on both feet while leaning on an object. In this video series we will focus on topics such as: independent transition to sitting, continuing to develop the balance system, confidence in independent transition to standing, confidence in standing, and more.
