When you’ve been doing exercise for at least a year, you may want to consider giving it a rest.
This article explains how exercise can help babies’ immune systems and helps you know when it’s safe to stop.
You can do exercise for infants by using a variety of physical activities, from walking, to jogging, to biking.
But exercise for toddlers can be particularly challenging, so we’ve broken down the basic exercises into a few different categories to help you get started.
There are three primary categories of physical activity: sitting, standing, and walking.
Sit and stand are the most common activities in the first four months of life, and most babies will get enough physical activity throughout the first two months of their lives to keep them healthy.
Sit, stand, and walk can be a great way to get kids started on their own and can help them develop strength, coordination, and motor skills.
Your baby can learn to sit on the couch when he or she is sitting.
Sit by the couch or a low table with the back facing you, or on a low stool if you can’t reach the baby.
Sit with your knees bent and your feet on the floor.
When your baby is lying down, try to bring your hands together to gently push down on the baby’s lower back and upper thighs.
You should be able to move your hands in rhythm to the rhythm of your baby’s breathing and heartbeat.
Sit for a few minutes and then take a step back, turn your head and try again.
Repeat for 30 seconds.
If your baby has trouble sitting and standing, you can try walking with him or her.
Sit on the other side of a curb or a railing or other low spot to get a little distance from your baby.
You may want your baby to lie back on his or her back with his or a leg up on a wall or crate.
When the baby is about four months old, sit in a recliner with a couch or other place for a short time.
Try to sit at least five feet away from the crib and make sure the crib is comfortable for you.
When your baby starts walking, it may help to move him or herself from the couch and into a walking space.
Walk around the crib, and your baby should get some sense of what’s in the walk area.
If your baby doesn’t move or stand up straight, take him or a friend to the walk spot and start walking.
When you see your baby walking, put a hand on his hip or calf or shoulder and gently roll your baby into a sitting position on the curb.
The baby should sit comfortably, and the walking should continue.
When walking with your baby, make sure you keep your hands close to his or the baby to keep him or another person safe.
You don’t want to have to take your baby on a ride, so it’s important to make sure your baby stays on his own and comfortable.
Your toddler should learn to stand up on his feet.
You can also teach your toddler to sit down and to stand on his toes when he is sitting on the same foot with his parents.
Start by starting with a step.
Sit down on your knees and then stand up with your feet together.
Your toddler should be about six to eight inches from the ground when you get to the step.
Then stand up and slowly walk about four to five feet.
When he is about nine months old or older, you’ll see him sitting up with his feet on a hardwood bench or a wall.
Once you’re comfortable with the new position, gradually build up to a more upright position.
Your child may need to sit in front of a wall and stand on one foot with both hands.
Then, start walking to a comfortable sitting position, and continue with the steps you taught.
Once your toddler is about two years old, you might consider giving him or other children some physical activity.
If you don’t have a walker or sitter, find a child-size car seat or a chair for your toddler.
The car seat and chair should be sturdy enough to support a toddler who is about eight to nine months of age.
If the car seat isn’t large enough, try sitting on a reclining chair or other seat that’s at least six inches wide.
Try using a sturdy chair with a padded armrest to make it easier for your baby and a walk buddy to sit and walk safely.
Once you’ve gotten the basics down, you should be ready to begin building your own baby-sized activity plan.
