Games for 3 - 6mths Bouncing Baby
This is a fantastic game that your baby will probably enjoy up to the age of at least 3 years!
Just sit the baby on your knee and gently bonce him / her up and down. Make eye contact while you do so and sing a little rhyme – anything you like, you can just make one up going “bouncy bouncy bouncy bounce!” Every third bounce or so do a big intake of breath and do a “wheee” and a bigger bounce.
Babies love anticipation and then once they anticipate something, getting it right! The gentle bouncing in a seated position helps them develop their muscles and helps them improve their balance.
As they get a little older, try just holding their hands and wrists so they can improve their balance.
Do not scare them, or let them fall over.
