Encourage movement with your infant
What You Need:
What To Do:
- Lay your infant on his back on a soft surface such as a changing table, carpeted floor, or a comfortable blanket.
- Take hold of his feet in your hands.
- Start moving his feet back and forth, slowly at first and then faster.
- Recite the following rhyme as you move his feet:
Motorboat, motorboat, go so slow (while moving his legs slowly)
Motorboat, motorboat go so fast (move his legs a little faster)
Motorboat, motorboat step on the gas! (move his legs even faster)
- Watch to see if your infant starts to move his legs with you or push against you.
- Do it over again as long as he seems to enjoy it.
