You can help your Baby

Baby Builders is a developmental baby exercise program that teaches parents how to be proactive in their infant’s development. Parents work through four developmental stages that stimulate an infant’s motor and cognitive development from birth through tummy time and crawling until walking. The activities and techniques show how to make playtime constructive. As well, it educates parents on the progression of development and recommends toys that can enhance cognitive and motor development.

The Baby Builders program was designed to promote development of babies with special concerns (but is effective with all babies).

Say it Ain’t so: Motor Skill Development affects Speech?

Research continues to tell us that motor skill development in infancy is really the cornerstone to all other development.  For example, let’s look at speech. If a child has a weak trunk and neck, does it affect their speech?  You bet it does.  Just like the old, children’s song about all the bones being connected, [...]

One of my favorite references for research on Tummy [...]

Why Baby Builders Exercises Gets Results

Baby Builders infant development program is based primarily on the principles of movement systems balance (MSB) and postural control. Postural control muscles or CORE MUSCLES are those in the hips, tummy, neck and shoulders.

Weak postural control muscles are the primary problem with preterm infants, infants with Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy and other at-risk infants.

Postural control plays a HUGE role in a child’s life. Those muscles stabilize the trunk to allow for good coordinated movement of the arms, legs, head, jaw and even the eyes. Strong postural control muscles allow good hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills (pincer grasp, handwriting and handling of small objects), speech and swallowing, higher level motor skills (jumping, skipping, walking on a straight line, etc), and stabilization of the eyes for reading and learning.

The best time to strengthen postural control muscles is the first year. After the first year, it is MUCH more difficult — and often times impossible if the child has high muscle tone – to isolate and strengthen these muscles.   Without strong postural control muscles, a child will compensate for the lack of strength with abnormal movement patterns and “blocking” of joints to gain stability. This “blocking” significantly limits movement and coordination.

Baby Builders uses fun playtime activities to teach parents and caregivers how to strengthen an infant’s postural control muscles while stimulating his gross motor skill development.
