Infant Stimulation Activity 32: motion

Maybe it is still cold outside where you are, or perhaps today it is raining, or you just do not feel like going outside. Well, there are still lots of ways to put your infant in motion. Here is a video of a baby being pushed back and forth in his high chair. He is having a blast! The most important points are 1)there is extended interaction with the parent 2) the baby is enjoying himself 3)the parent is enjoying himself - seems all three are going on here.

Ways to enhance this activity include lanuage, perhaps saying "near" then "far." Also, you can move the baby to some music, either you can sing, put on a cd or the radio. Above all, have a good time, smile, and watch for when your baby is ready to stop.
