First Year Motor Skills

Want a simple suggestion that will help your baby develop her physical abilities and cognition? Try putting her on her tummy. Although she may initially fuss, your baby will reach major motor milestones by spending time belly to floor. Around 6 to 10 months, she'll start arching her back and kicking her feet. Next she'll learn to rollover, get up on her hands and knees, and then, in most cases, crawl.
