Many of you remember my birth story with Calvin. At about 38 weeks, we found our Calvin was breech and I had no fluids left. I was in so much pain at the end of my pregnancy because of this. We scheduled a caesarean section about 3 days later. He was born and the pediatrician and physical therapist had concerns about his neck and hips. We started physical therapy right away and had our first appointment a week after we were discharged with the hospital. We started working on a lot of tummy time and stretches. We were very intentional with how we laid him and the amount of time he had to be at certain angles. Once he was strong enough and started sitting on his own, we worked out crawling, standing and a lot of movement with his legs and feet!
Calvin started crawling really well around 7 months. He just turned 10 months and started pulling up to stand, climb and balance on his feet! He's definitely a fearless little explorer!
This single tunnel foam set is perfect for any baby or toddler on the move! Active play at home has been great and much needed since COVID is still around and we haven't been able to join any play gyms or anything. It's so soft and sturdy! It's nontoxic and SO easy to clean off his drool or sticky finger marks!
Active play is so crucial in a baby/child's life. It allows them to learn what their bodies can do, challenges their minds to become creative, strengthens bones, muscles and brain by establishing connections between them! Not to mention it helps develop their locomotor skills. Children learn best when they can use their whole bodies and stimulate their minds. Active play is great for babies and children because it allows them to move at their own pace and problem solve on their own.
This foam set has motivated him to climb and work on standing! He's so curious and always wants to get around! It's really helped Calvin develop his hand-eye coordination and gross motor skills. He uses his foam set daily and has mastered climbing the stairs! We are working on backing down the ramp or slowly using it as a slide!
