Babies NEED tummy time! At 11 months old, this little cutie should have a nicely rounded head, developed S curves in his neck and low back, and flexible legs that move in and out of various sitting positions. But, largely due to lack of time on his tummy and OVERUSE of "baby containers" such as bouncy seats, swings, and car seat carriers that go from car to grocery store to restaurant, he has positional plagiocephaly (flat skull) a big ol' C curve in his spine preventing him from getting on hands and knees to crawl, and hips and legs so tight he can't even straighten his knees! And these are only the outwardly visible problems...too much pressure on baby's spine and vision centers of the brain from lying on their backs are detrimental to development! So....tummy time, tummy time, tummy time! Do it!
ADDITIONAL INSIGHT:
Tummy time IS absolutely important for development! It doesn't have to be on the floor, but can be on the caregiver's chest, supported over their lap or bent knees, or on a nursing pillow for younger babies. Many of the comments we've read are stating babies shouldn't be placed in "unnatural" positions or those they can get out of. As developmental therapists, we specialize in the timeline of babies moving from the flexion posture (fetal position) through anti-gravity extension. The ONLY "natural" position for a baby is flexion. If you lay an infant on their back, i.e. In extension their arms flail and they think they're falling (this is the Moro reflex) and is why we swaddle babies to keep their arms and legs tucked in close like they were in the womb. The flexion tummy time provides is in fact very safe and natural. We urge you to find a specialist in your area if your baby struggles with reflux and isn't tolerating tummy time that can help develop strategies that will promote being off of their backs. AGAIN, this post is directed to parents and caregivers of babies who are typically developing and not those with special needs or other medical diagnoses. The baby in the picture fits this description. It is not meant to be judgmental but informative on what CAN happen. We are so pleased that it has opened up conversation between parents and health care providers to help prevent these issues from occurring.

Our Story

The JUMP START STUDIO offers classes for babies from as young as FOUR MONTHS old. These little ones attend a weekly session with a parent (or significant other) where the focus is on having fun with movement and encouraging "play with a purpose".

TODDLERS up to the age of three and a half also attend with a parent and their classes use movement to explore role play activities, spacial awareness, physical development and so much more. These programmes focus on rhythm, co-ordination, balance and bilateral integration while at the same time integrating listening skills and language development.

PRESCHOOLERS up to the age of six may be dropped off for a weekly class of creative movement that encourages more independent activities. These classes combine music interpretation, dramatic expression and sequencing with all the skills laid down in the previous programmes.

CREATIVE DANCE programmes are also offered for those who want a relaxed introduction to any form of dance. The pre-dance skills include more choreographed activities that give them a taste of ballet, modern and hip-hop. Some technique is introduced but everything is taught through imagery and the narrative.

The most important aim of all the programmes at the JUMP START STUDIO is to build confidence and to grow self-esteem.
