This baby activity will build your baby's balance and is a good complimentary (and sometimes more enjoyable) activity to Tummytime. You will need a smaller sized inflatable exercise or beach ball. It helps to have the ball slightly deflated. Your baby should have reasonable neck control before beginning this activity.
Place your baby's tummy on the ball with her head to one side, holding securely onto her sides. For infants, be sure to support her head and neck. Now you can rock her forward and backward or side to side as you talk to her.
As your baby gets older, you can also slowly spin the ball (baby parallel to floor) to give her various vantage points.
