Different ways of crawling are okay!

Fascinating how babies have such different ways of locomoting. Not all crawling is hands and knees. M crawls mostly on her elbows and knees, like a little combat soldier. B crawls mostly by putting her two paws out in front and then pulls left knee, then right knee along with her. When she puts those paws out, she looks like a feline pouncing on a prey! Different crawling patterns does not affect future locomotion, just another part of their distinctive individual personalities…

Being present with your baby

Friday, September 16th, 2011 10:06 pm | By Stephanie Woo

Newborns can see 10-12 inches away, which is the distance to their mother’s face when they are in the nursing position. Now that they are outside the belly, they are developing new ways of getting to know Mama (besides all the ways they’ve come to know her already, like her voice, her heartbeat, her movements, her smell, etc). One of those new ways is recognizing her face. Nursing gives baby plenty of opportunity to get to know her in this new way. Nursing is an important time for mom and baby get to know each other, so make sure you are being present with her while nursing.
