Developmental Benefits

Your baby needs months to gain full control of her body movements, but you can assist her during those early weeks with a game of Tootsie Roll. By four to six months your baby will have mastered the rollover!

Instructions

  • Place a soft blanket or towel on a soft surface.
  • Lay your baby down on the blanket, on her tummy.
  • Pick up one side of the blanket and slowly raise it, causing your baby to tilt to the side.
  • Continue to slowly roll your baby over, talking to her as you go, and using a hand to spot or guide her as she turns.
  • When your baby turns over, show your delight.
  • Repeat until your baby is tired of playing.

Materials

  • Soft blanket or towel
  • Soft floor surface

Safety

Be sure to move slowly and keep a hand on your baby so she doesn’t roll too fast and get hurt.
