Baby Sit-Ups

Baby Playtime

Place your child on their back on a blanket. Holding either side of the blanket above their head, gently lift the sides and move them up almost into a sitting position. Look into their eyes, smile, and speak to them then gently lower them back down. If they enjoyed it, do it again!

See what your child is learning

One of your child’s earliest skills is their ability to pay attention to something interesting—in this case, you! They especially like to look at you. By smiling at and talking to them, you help increase their attention span as well as strengthen the bond between you.
