The Importance of Tummy Time for Babies

Babies need time spent on their tummies it helps them to develop their back and neck muscles needed for future movement. Babies who are laid on their backs all day do not get a chance to develop these crucial muscles in the same way. Regular tummy time works to increase babies' movement skills and confidence needed for crawling and also helps to develop their coordination and balance and babies that engage in regular time on their front each day are generally able to roll, crawl, sit, stand and walk earlier than babies that do not.

Benefits of music in child development

Music plays a big part in our culture and cultures across the world, we instinctively use music to soothe babies, in play and to express love, however, there is more to this than meets the eye. Music plays a big part in the natural development of children in all areas from developing motor skills through dance and movement, to improving linguistic skills and social development.
