Kids at this age are changing rapidly. We don’t often hear how we should be exercising as it is very difficult to control. The most important thing here is to get them moving at the pace and developmental stage that they are at. So here are a few exercises you can assist with their development.

0-1 years

Rolling

Using toys and, I hate to say it, screens is a great way to assist with this stage of development. Place them on their back, hold the toy to one side and then slowly move it up above their shoulder. As they track it, come around the other side. You may need to assist them onto their elbows and then when you return move their arms out of the way.

Tummy Time

Tummy time is such a big developmental stage and let’s be honest they mostly hate it. Here are some tips to assist.

  • Get down on the floor with them
  • Have them lying on you, in between your legs or on your tummy
  • Have toys in front on them for them to play with
  • Every nappy and bath time get them onto their tummy to clean and cream their bottom.

Pulling up at nappy table

Level 1:

The neck strength and head control are a never-ending battle in those first few months. Every time you change their nappy at around 3 months, pull them up from lying to sitting with their hands. Repeat x 5. Go nice and slowly and let their neck do the work.

Level 2:

When they progress to wanting to stand. Progress this exercise to lying on the nappy table and coming up to standing to have a cuddle with you.

Cruising Furniture

Once we are up we are up. Tease the little gem by popping the bottle or a favourite toy, or the remote a metre away so that he starts to reach out and he will start to lift one leg and gradually start to move along. Move all sharp object out of the way and just sit closely to keep an eye on him while he plays with this new method of exploring.

Walking behind a trolley

Once he is standing up on furniture you can use a trolley or walking toy for him to balance up to when standing. Or even your hands to start with. Move the trolley back a few centermeters and get them to lean into it and pick up a leg.

Squatting

Holding bubby’s hands or having him hold a piece of furniture, slowly get him to lower and stand up again. They should do this on their own and you can just support and pop toys around them to reach out for. Try x5 3 times a day.
