The Importance of Healthy Hips in Your Baby’s Development

The Importance of Healthy Hips in Your Baby’s Development

As a physical therapist, a common question parents (and grandparents) often ask me about is “why don’t PTs like seats?” It’s funny because as a PT, I always refer to seats or toys as “tools”. The tools to help your baby engage are just as important as when they are playing on the floor - why? Because of how our muscles and bones develop - specifically the pelvis area.

Proper Positioning for Your Baby Starts with the Pelvis

Proper Positioning for Your Baby Starts with the Pelvis

One of the most common questions I get asked as a therapist and educator is “when can I start practicing sitting with my baby?” Sitting is such a fun milestone for parents and oftentimes when they feel like their baby starts to become a little more independent. But it is important to consider a few factors when thinking about sitting skills. Positioning starts with the pelvis and we need to make sure that our baby’s pelvis is in good alignment to promote good posture and balance for sitting.

Dear Momma

Dear Momma

Today I had an “Ah ha moment”, and I just have to share it with you. Why? Because if you are anything like me, you research the heck out of everything that can remotely effect your baby in some way, shape or form. I’m going to save you some time here because let’s be honest… you could be using these hours to catch up on some much needed sleep, a shower, or just a simple breather.
