Grabbing feet in supine – very important milestone in baby development

Grabbing feet in supine is one of the first signs that baby will be rolling soon from back to tummy. This is important for sooooo many reasons:

  1. Time to transition out of swaddle for safety. (Go to sleep sack, not a Magic Merlin Sleep suit which keeps baby on back)
  2. Introduces the concept to baby that we can actually MOVE OUR BODIES to get to things. Motor planning gold!
  3. Works core strength.
  4. Encourages eye hand coordination.

Enjoy this beautiful developmental milestone – they don’t call it “happy baby pose” in yoga for nothing!
