Remember as a parent you are your baby’s first educator!
Babies need to move a lot before they are 2 years old so that they can sit still in school one day. There is no need for reclining chairs, walking rings or dangling contraptions – a six-pack and straight back starts with tummy time on a blanket! Low muscle tone can be prevented.
