It is more than clear that the babies are born with a crawl reflex. The reflex must be stimulated otherwise, it will fade.

When the baby learns to turn over, it will soon start to spin on the stomach with the hand from a lying position and to reach the toys that are around him or in his environment. If the toy is out of reach the baby will try to adjust the body in that direction. To succeed as a parent you need to help the baby with some exercises that we suggest in the text below supported by appropriate images.

 

  1. In order to get in four-legged position, the baby should have a good hands-rest.

2.If the baby does not lean with the hands on the floor, it is necessary for you to place the baby’s hands in the right position so that it can feel the palm rest and stimulate it with the toy to lift the other hand.

3.For the baby to move forward, first it is necessary to teach the baby how to reach the toy with the hand and grab it.

5. In this four-legged position, you raise the baby’s stomach, transferring the weight of the body from the stomach to the knees and the spine.

6. The next step is to shift the weight back and forth. You can achieve this with the help of the training roller.

7. When the baby overcomes the four-legged position and moves forward, we raise the baby in a high-kneeling position as shown in the picture, which is actually a preparation for standing upright.
