Parents’ Guide to Positions that Help Baby’s Development



Baby needs to experience different positions during the day to be able to play and explore. Put baby in these positions during the day. They help with development and get baby out of carriers.

Carry baby against your chest or shoulder. This helps activate their core and sense of balance. Be sure to alternate sides to help prevent positional torticollis. Side-lying helps baby bring their hands together to play. Be sure to alternate sides for this position as well. Putting baby on their back helps baby experience how they move. Supported sitting with baby facing you helps you bond with baby. Tummy Time helps baby build the core muscles needed to reach developmental milestones.

Rotate through these positions during the day to maximize development!
