Massage for babies on the ball, kids

While still pregnant, I bought a gym ball (fitball) with a diameter of 70 centimeters in a sports store. All my mom’s friends buzzed my ears, that he would definitely come in handy to rock the baby and do special gymnastics. And, indeed, the ball turned out to be incredibly useful.

What is fitball for?

The most important thing that begins the development of the newborn, is the development of the vestibular apparatus. Fitball for this is perfect.

Just swinging on the ball relieves stress from the child’s limbs. Do not forget that when performing simple exercises on fitball in an infant, muscles strengthen. This is especially beneficial for strengthening and developing the muscles of the spine. When the baby is placed on the tummy on the fitball and begin to sway, his abdominal muscles relax, breathing becomes easier.

It is important to remember that all activities and manipulations with the newborn need to be performed smoothly, carefully. In no case can not dramatically pull the child by the limbs or hold the foot or hand.

The first classes on the ball, I spent very carefully. I put Sabrina on a ball, on a diaper and slowly began to rotate him in a circle, holding my daughter by the legs and back. By the time it took me a few minutes. Then, I gradually began to increase the time of classes and the amplitude of rotation.

After, when the daughter’s muscles got stronger, I held her only by the legs. I also began to put it on my back, on the ball and to bend and unbend the legs, holding them by the shins. Another of Sabrina’s favorite exercises is bouncing on a ball. I put it on the tummy or back and began to spring up a little on the ball up and down, gradually increasing the amplitude of the movements.

When the daughter learned to sit and be interested in toys, I began to perform more difficult exercises with her. I laid a toy on the floor in front of the ball and, holding my daughter by the legs and tilting the ball, lowered it to her. The first few lessons she didn’t understand what I wanted from her, but after a few approaches she began to grab the toy.

I also sat her astride a ball and held her in that position, a little spring. True, at first she did it not for long, so that her back would not get tired.

I admit honestly, at 8 months we somehow abandoned gymnastics on the ball. Now my daughter is a year old and she herself shows interest in the fitball, comes up to him and rolls it with her hands, falls on him. In general, having fun with him even without my help) And she also really likes when I pick her up, sit on the ball and start jumping on it. This leads her into wild delight and she laughs.

And you used fitball in classes with your children, which exercises did you like most especially?
