Let’s Turn Around

Illustrationen: Nila Aye When changing your baby’s diapers you have to turn it from the back position over the side to the belly. Babies and infants are perfectly capable to do this movement if they have sufficient time. So rule number one for a baby friendly movement is to take your time. Slow down! Babies cannot follow our fast and automatic movements. Much better is it to put one hand under the shoulder of your child the other one at the hips and then soft, in slow motion indicate the direction of the turn. You can feel how the baby tightens its muscles and helps with the turn.
