Roll me over!

This is a fun and physical way to get baby moving!

Using a soft towel, place your baby onto it on her tummy. Pick up one side of the towel and slowly raise it, causing baby to tilt to the side. Continue to slowly roll baby over, talking to her as you go, and using a hand to guide her as she turns. When your baby turns over, show your delight.

Baby may be a little startled at this new experience so keep talking to her to reassure her.

If baby is comfortable with this activity then you can lift up the opposite side of the towel and do the same thing so that she rolls over on her other side. This will help her to develop balanced muscles on each side of her body and is the first step in her gaining the strength to sit up and eventually crawl.
