👶Why is it important to set routines for my baby?
🧠Babies thrive in a predictable world, and for good reason -every day is filled with new learning experiences and excitement. This is why getting your baby into a routine will provide a sense of safety, comfort, and trust. ✅Another important factor to it is that babies don’t understand the concept of time yet, so they organize their lives based on the events that happen during the day. ⏰When things happen in the same order, babies have a better understanding of their world!
👶 Crawling is an important milestone! But how and when a baby starts crawling is different for every child. Don't worry if your baby is taking longer than expected! ⠀ 👩⚕️Keep in mind that your little one is not programmed to crawl. 👆The important part is that he coordinates both sides of his body and uses each arm and leg equally. ⠀ ❤️ Find activities to help your baby learn to craw here.

Playing is nature’s own formula for learning.
