Head-up training not only can exercise the baby’s neck and back muscles but also expand the baby’s field of vision, which is conducive to intellectual development. So how to train your baby?
Benefits of head-up training
This is an important lesson in baby limb training. Because head-up training not only can exercise the baby’s neck and back muscles, but also promote the baby to look up earlier, expand the baby’s field of vision, and promote the baby cognitive development.
let your baby lie down and you can use toys to make your baby look up. But the training time should not be too long, to ensure to not strain the baby’s neck.
Hold your baby up
After feeding the baby, the mother can hold the baby in an upright position and gently pat the baby’s back for a few taps to prevent milk flow. Then let the baby’s head rest on your shoulder, let the baby’s head stand upright for a while, and train the baby’s neck muscles.
Let your baby sit with his head and back against your chest with his face facing outwards. Use one hand to protect your baby’s belly and the other to protect your baby’s neck. This will allow the baby to actively practice the ability to head up. Because the baby’s bone development is still relatively poor at this time, and can not be held vertically for a long time, the best practice time is 1-2 minutes each time. After exercising, gently stroke your baby’s back with your hand to relax the back muscles.
