Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

Using music and movement, we will develop baby’s gross motor skills and strengthen back muscles, in preparation for them to hold themselves up in a seated position. This is appropriate for babies 5 to 10 months old, and is still enjoyed by babies who are already sitting up on their own. Baby will love the combination of song and motion, as well as the person to person connection.

Sample Activities and Instructions

Your Kid Expert will sit on the floor with legs out in a V, and your baby will be seated facing them. A sturdy pillow or upright cushion will be propped behind the baby for support.
We will hold hands, Kid Expert grasping baby’s hands firmly and pulling gently so that baby leans forward, and then slightly back.
Your Kid Expert will sing the classic tune “Row, Row, Row Your Boat, at a slow rhythm, emphasizing each word with each rock. Baby and Kid Expert will both move forward and back in time to each word.
As your baby gets used to this game, you can lean farther and farther forward and back until you're practically on top of each other, encouraging lots of giggles!
