GROSS MOTOR SKILL DEVELOPMENT: CRAWLING TO SIT

YouTube Preview Image

There are many ways that babies can learn to sit.  Remember our post Baby Sitting Up?  It discussed the importance of baby learning to get in and out of the sitting positon on her own.  In the above video from nvyork’s youtube channel, baby Tris demonstrates one of the ways to sit from the crawling positon.  From either the 4-point or the belly crawling position, Tris brings his left knee forward and then pushes backward with his hands to sit down on his bottom.  Watch how easily he gets in and out of the sitting position.  This is wonderful motor skill development!  He is much more independent when he can decide for himself when to sit and when he would like to go somewhere else in the room to play.
