Baby Sit-Ups

We’ve been working on strengthening Veronika’s little muscles in various cute ways, and I highly encourage you to add this method to the list!

Start with your infant lying on a soft surface in front of you.

I gave her a little count of three each time – 1, 2, 3…

….then gently and firmly grasped her hands and pulled upwards. Veronika grinned each time we repeated this motion!

We paused at the top for big coos and smiles, then I gently lowered her back down.

If your baby doesn’t have great head control yet, be sure to place one hand behind the head and neck on the way back down.

Do a few crunches, then rest! Seven minute abs just got a whole lot cuter.
