Your baby is in full development, would you like to learn together?

Your baby is now around 8 weeks old, which means he or she is developing rapidly. Every day your baby grows, he or she can do something new. To understand and stimulate your baby's motor development, Nienke from baby.skills has developed a calendar in which she guides parents through the development. Due to her experience as a pediatric physiotherapist and work in a rehabilitation center, she can provide valuable insights that may still be new to you.

In this email Nienke gives two development tips and an exercise that you can do with your baby. Got excited? Then we have a nice surprise for you at the bottom of the email.

Did you know that from now on your baby can look all the way from left to right and back again when lying on his back? Try it out while changing by moving a toy from left to right.

Preferably change straight ahead. During the first month, all babies have a preference to the right, which should disappear after a month. If you change them on the left, you always entice them to look to the right, because they want to look at you. You can also practice that fun follow game when they are lying right in front of you and you always encourage them to look straight ahead. This way you prevent a preferential position.


Between two and three months, babies raise their heads in a side-lying position. From that moment on, you can practice this during changing by turning them from the supine position to their stomach. Before they get into the prone position, they raise their heads in the side position, otherwise their nose will go over the bottom layer. Always practice this in both directions to avoid a preferential position. Click here for a how-to video from Babyskills.


To keep track of this development and learn what your baby can do day by day, Baby.skills has developed a calendar. The calendar was designed by a pediatric physiotherapist and helps you develop and understand your baby's entire motor skills.

Baby.skills takes you through the daily development of your child. From day one to the special moment of walking independently. You will receive information, tips and tricks to learn everything about your baby's sensorimotor skills and to stimulate development through play. This way, among other things, you prevent a preferential position or a flat back of the head and you identify reflux earlier.

Curious about this calendar? Then we have something nice for you. With the following code ' tinylibrary' you get a 10% discount on your order of the calendar on the baby.skills website.
