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:
- Time to transition out of swaddle for safety. (Go to sleep sack, not a Magic Merlin Sleep suit which keeps baby on back)
- Introduces the concept to baby that we can actually MOVE OUR BODIES to get to things. Motor planning gold!
- Works core strength.
- Encourages eye hand coordination.
Enjoy this beautiful developmental milestone – they don’t call it “happy baby pose” in yoga for nothing!
