Adult movements are parallel. For instants adults stand right in front of a chair and then sit down. Anyone who has ever observed a child sitting down can tell it looks much different. Children need a rotation to do these movements. Whether they go from a lying down to a crawler position or from sitting down to a stand up in any case they move in a spiral way from one position to the next. Parents who have this in mind can use this moving pattern when sitting down with the baby in their arms. Apparently this spiral movement shell help in cases of bellyache and bloating.
