We have lots to say about the importance of what we do...
In early childhood (0-4), a child's brain complete's 90% of its development for life. That's a lot of stuff to figure out (aka neural pathways to be built) in a super short period of time. Especially in the first 2 years, a baby's body and brain develop in tandem. Physical milestones support cognitive milestones and vise versa. There is a very intentional reason for every milestone a child hits (to learn more, check out "Your Self Motivated Baby" by Beverly Stokes). Nature has planned out every nitty gritty detail of the precise developmental journey from babyhood to becoming an upright, functional, high-level-thinking member of society though each in their own unique way.
People often underestimate how much babies are learning and doing at any given time as a learning baby can often be slow moving, quiet, or even asleep! But I assure you, if your baby's brain was a real-live show, it would be a blaring concert with a symphony of sounds, special-effect lighting, choreography, and pyrotechnics. This is why we call upon YOU- parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, babysitters, teachers, the whole village- to give your baby the support and environment they need to explore and grow.
Moving every day and in every way, brings awareness to the brain and sensory system in ways babies are not able to stimulate independently. As they experience more sensations, they are more interested in exploring, the more they explore, the more they learn, the more they grow!

SO, the tip of the day is to get your baby moving in lots of different ways with our without music. This video will get you started, enjoy this and many other Little Beats babies classes from home on our Youtube Channel, Little beats from Home.
