Your newborn's first three months...


This a period when your baby is adapting to the new world, and you are adapting to being a parent. You want to make sure everything with your child is off to the best start possible.

The six movements in this FREE program organize your baby's core to prepare them for all the playful development about to unfold. These moves are ideal to begin at age 0-3 months. (If older you may need adaptations from our coaches.)

Each new movement video becomes available weekly for six consecutive weeks. (You will have continued access following the six weeks.)

Your baby having the best possible

start is our mission!


Our expertise is about the essential role of the body's micromovements developed in this early period of life.

Our goal is to get you and your baby off to the best start possible, and our gift to you is this set of movements to use for playtime during baby's first few months.

We also offer options for coaching along the way in case your baby is a bit of a challenge.

Enjoy!


Common Questions


When and how often to do the movements.

a.    The movements can be done daily as part of your routine.

b.    You can skip a day when your routine is off.

c.     Try to get in a least 5 days of doing the movement, and then continue to the next week of the program.

d.    You can adapt moving your baby to respond to their needs and way of moving. A little playful variety is just what they need. This might include tiny movements, slow movements, faster movements, or even a long pause.

e.    If your baby seems to enjoy one movement more than another, use your intuition and have fun with it!

What you will notice.

The baby’s movements smooth, organize and become more symmetric. Control of these little movements sets the stage for the milestones ahead!


When You Select the Coaching Option you also get...

We are observing a trend over time of basic organization and maturation of infant movements. The movements you are using for play help to fill in little movement gaps which may have arisen from prenatal positioning, birth stress, and post-natal stress, illness or medical procedures.

What we are not doing.

We are not diagnosing any developmental conditions, although we may recommend a consultation with medical or developmental professionals.
