So now we’re gonna do an activity where you
can sing, dance, and play with your babies in a way that they can experience their own
weight in gravity. And let’s have Blake and Aiden look at each other, and why don’t we
sing together a sing that they know, and you know, and just swing their bodies like this.
[MUSIC] [MUSIC] Adding music to your playtime with you and your baby is a great way to spend
time together. And you can gently sway them from side to side or gently move around. You’re
singing, they’re hearing the music, and they’re moving. They’re feeling the rhythm, and it’s
a great experience for their body, and you too. Your baby loves your voice and responds
to your voice. So sing whatever you like. One of the ways I like to create multi sensory
experiences for babies is to have music and toys, together. [MUSIC] Take some small instruments
or some gentle rattles and do some tapping on your baby’s body while you’re singing.
In this way you’re actually stimulating the muscles, you’re encouraging the baby to feel
the music and the rhythm in their body. You’re doing the activity together, and it’s a great
opportunity for baby to experience music, movement and play.
