Body Movement

The Rolling (Mile)Stone

Your baby's muscles are growing stronger, and a Body Movement you may soon see is the rollover, from front to back or back to front. You can help him practice his rolling skills by showing him a toy, and moving it to the side opposite of the grabbing hand to encourage him to roll his body over to get it. You can also help him get his daily exercise in other ways, like continuing to give him tummy time or occasionally placing his toys just out of reach. And while bouncy seats and swings are especially useful during this period, allowing you to keep your baby safe as you complete a chore (or simply shower!), be sure he gets plenty of time to wiggle and stretch out on her own to fully exercise his large muscles.

Has your baby achieved the following Body Movement developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) he has already mastered to date!
