Babies get picked up and put down many times a day. We automatically choose the shorts “way” of doing it. Think about it: Your baby lies on it back, you come, place a hand under its body and the other under his head and up you go. The same way we do it lying the baby down. This is an unnatural move for your child and there is no chance for it to actively participate. Your baby enjoys rolling from his back with a little gentle help to his tummy. When prop up the arms your hand is holding and supporting the little chest and slowly move into a supported stand up position. Now is the perfect time to pick up your happy bundle of joy.
