At seven months, Madison shows us how to scoot:
BENEFITS OF THE MOTOR SKILL OF SCOOTING
Scooting, an important motor activity for babies, can occur while she is lying on her stomach or on her back. It can be an important step toward developing the strength and the skill of pushing against the floor. This action of pushing against the floor gives movement much more power. The above scoot, performed while lying on the back, also develops the muscles that extend the hips (straighten the legs). These muscles are also used in crawling and walking. The short and quick burst of the scooting movement can be fun and playful!
