Meeting Milestones – How to Help Baby Lift & Hold Head Up
Help baby meet their 0-3 month motor milestone of lifting and holding up their head while on their tummy.
Position baby’s elbows close to their body to help baby have a better base of support so they are able to push up more easily. Move a toy upward once it has caught baby’s gaze to encourage baby to lift their head to see toy. Place a hand on baby’s bottom to help shift weight from chest towards pelvis to make it easier to lift up off the ground.
