Day 147 - Move Along

Today's Tip - Use your hands or a rolled up towel behind your baby's feet to help them learn to crawl

Babies need a little extra help when they are just learning something new. Mine is starting to try and crawl. Instead of moving forward, he kind of spins in circles. He just doesn't have the push up AND kick with feet together thing down just yet. And he kind of kicks the air rather than pushes against the ground.

To help him along, I hold my hand behind his feet or I hold a rolled up towel tight behind his feet so that he has something to scoot against. It'll help him learn to put the movements he needs to crawl together, and he has lots of fun sliding across the ground.
