Why Belly time is important for babies http://www.starspediatrictherapy.com/blog/why-belly-time-is-important-for-babies/ http://www.starspediatrictherapy.com/blog/why-belly-time-is-important-for-babies/#comments Mon, 19 Mar 2012 19:37:55 +0000 http://magicxserver.info/starsfinal/?p=70 Years ago, mom’s put their babies to sleep on their bellies. Nowadays, we have been taught to put our babies to sleep on their backs. This makes it even more important to give our little ones belly time during the day. It will help prevent a “flat head”, flattening of the back of the skull due to increased time spent in one position, and enable them to develop muscles necessary to learn how to roll, sit, crawl and ultimately walk.

Place your baby on their belly, on a soft comfortable mat or blanket. Make sure their neck is strong enough so they can turn to either side or lift their head up to breath. You can place toys in front of them on the floor to play with, dangle toys a few inches off the floor for baby to look up at or even get down on the floor in front of them and encourage baby to look at you. Babies love to look at faces.  Make it fun!  If you find your baby has a hard time tolerating tummy time, try small increments (1-2 minutes if necessary) and build from there. Remember parents, never leave your babies unattended and enjoy every moment!

We love Maria! http://www.starspediatrictherapy.com/testimonials/we-love-maria-101211/ http://www.starspediatrictherapy.com/testimonials/we-love-maria-101211/#comments Wed, 12 Oct 2011 13:06:47 +0000 http://magicxserver.info/starsfinal/?p=93 “My daughter first began seeing Maria at the age of 7 months, after she began falling behind in her developmental milestones.   It was clear in the beginning that Maria was no ordinary physical therapist.

Over the 2 1/2 years that my daughter has been Maria’s client I have always found her to be a kind, enthusiastic, and creative physical therapist. Most of all I think Maria is extremely knowledgeable in dealing with the pediatric population and extremely thorough with the approach she takes with my daughter’s care.  She has time and again gone the extra mile to make sure my daughter is being properly supported beyond the office setting, helping to get equipment in-home and never hesitating to liaison with my daughter’s pre-school as necessary.

My daughter has made huge strides in her development due in large part to the great care Maria has taken with her.  We love Maria!”
