GladChild: Kinesthetic Infant Handling Methods backdrop observation that infants can only move passively because everything is set for adults. When in fact, babies have trained their bodies from inside the uterus for birth preparation. Unfortunately, after birth, they are not doing anything, for example by always being held, when it was laid not given a chance to do anything.

Holding a baby and laid in the bed that did not make it passive. Babies are given the opportunity to move with their parents.

Lower level. Most of the babies movements performed in a lying position. As a result, when he carried or being carried, he would have limited motion. Occasionally you also need to position yourself level with the baby and moved with him, how:
  • Lie down with the baby on the carpet.
  • Do movements such as tilting the baby's body, put your body over your body baby, do the various movements together.
Get used to turning his body from supine to prone position, then returned to the supine position. This movement can actually be done alone by the baby, but with practice, she will more quickly master it.

Build Your Own. For baby, your movement, when lifted and carried her, not natural and not give him the chance to move on. In order for the baby to move more actively, do:
  • From the supine position, he helped turn around the tummy so that her body rested on the abdomen.
  • From behind his body, the chest held through the base of the arm. Slowly, help your baby stand alone. When you are in a position like this, baby can be lifted and carried as usual.
Breast feeding actively. When drinking milk, if the baby is only enabled her mouth alone? The answer is no. In the process of drinking milk or drink from the bottle, infant involve other body organs. For babies, it helps if allowed to hold her mother's breast or bottle. The movement allows the hands and fingers actively moving. So he drank more calm, it would be better if he was not allowed to hang but was detained with his mother. Parents who understand the needs of the baby, will make the baby becomes more calm and avoid digestive problems.

Rotate your hips. Habits of parent are different from the habits of young children. In changing its position, the children need movement turned away before entering into one movement. Whether it's the movement from sitting to standing, or from their backs to a crawl. They form a spiral motion from one position to another. Parents need to try the movement with her baby, because the spiral movement both to prevent flatulence and other stomach pains.

This method proved effective because the babies grow more agile and confident, especially those with congenital defects. Parents can apply this method without the need to follow a particular course. Movement can be trained together, until the baby can actively participate.
