It’s important to remember that babies need exercise too. They are constantly growing and changing so getting their little muscles moving is good for them. Just 10 to 15 minutes of play time/exercise is good for a baby. They don’t need much but getting their little muscles moving is fun for you and them. Try the supported Elbow Stand for babies 6-12 months, especially those that are starting to use objects to pull themselves up.
How to do it: Place your child on his belly and position his elbows precisely under his shoulders and forearms on the ground. Clutch and elevate his hips and trunk to form a 45-degree position to the ground. Let the child relax on his forearms. Attempt to elevate his legs slightly more while ensuring that it doesn’t knock his nose.
