http://www.sunnybrook.ca // Tummy time exercises for your baby – instructions from Sunnybrook’s Women & Babies Program staff.
When you take your baby home from the hospital, you will have been given instructions to put your baby to sleep on his or her back. But because of this, we need to give the baby opportunities to develop shoulder and abdominal muscles, and to prevent flattening of the back or side of the baby’s head.
Every time you change your baby’s diaper, turn your baby gently over onto his or her tummy. Gently put pressure on his or her bum, and bring his or her elbows in front of the shoulders. This will encourage your baby to lift his or her head. Do this for one or two minutes to ensure good strength of your baby’s shoulder and abdominal muscles.
Play is an essential activity for children! In this public service announcement from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. David Hill talks about the benefits of play for children’s growth and development. For more information, visit https://www.healthychildren.org/.
Considering Free Range Parenting? Do the Benefits Outweigh the Risks!?
The Parenting Junkie discusses free range parenting. What is free-range parenting? How are free range kids different from kids that grow up with helicopter parents? In this video you’ll learn why choosings to be a free range family is a great choice. When kids are allowed to be free-range kids the freedom and independence they gain allows them to grow into competent adults. In addition, research suggests that free range children grow up to be less anxious and depressed (who doesn’t want that?). In the book, How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims, she writes that she has met parents who would not allow their 17 year old daughter to take the subway.
