Fab ideas for babies who are crawling
Things change as soon as your baby is crawling!
Houses need re-arranging take things out of their reach, and you need to sharpen your reflexes to go grab, re-direct, move or otherwise rescue your once-still baby who is now well and truly on the move.
Crawling brings with it lots of fun times too. There are new games you can play together to have fun with your baby’s new-found motor skills, and a whole new world of things for your baby to head on over to and discover.
Here’s a fab collection of simple play ideas that you can use with your baby around this stage.
The ideas can be used to gently encourage your baby’s developing motor skills, and to set up some playtimes to enjoy together.
