Family Matters: First Six Months


First Six MonthsBaby’s learning curve and physical development are extraordinary in their first six months. Just think about all the things they learn in that time, from little bundles of sleepiness in the first few days to rolling, playing machines by six months.

A few of the vitally important things babies learn during their first six months are trust, social development and all the fun things their bodies can do!

This activity helps promote all those things, upper-body strength in particular.

Get a soft blanket and lay your infant on the blanket, face-up. Hold on to his wrists and then count, “One, two, three, UP” and gently pull him into a sitting position. Watch as he holds his head up flush with his body, strengthening those neck muscles. Gently lower him back down to the lying position and repeat. I used to give them a big, tickly kiss when I did this with my boys.
