Having a newborn in the house is the greatest joy. A baby always brings out a smile on everybody’s face.
But having to take care of one is not as easy as it seems, especially for the mom.
It is true a baby will change the biorhythm of his parents. She wakes up crying in the middle of the night because she needs to be fed. The same thing happens during the day.
A baby always requires attention, not to mention the worries about the baby’s health and growth that constantly overwhelm the mind of the parents. Well a solution that will ease some of these is probably fitness.
The body of a baby is still in development and therefore her muscles and joints are very flexible. This allows a broad pallet of movements that could be turned into a good fitness exercises.
And getting the baby a bit tired, the right and healthy way of course, will be excellent for a good sleep.
First of all any type of fitness exercising will contribute to strengthening the very special bond between the mother and her child. And since the baby is in her crucial stage of body development a little bit of fitness will only do the baby good.
It will be very helpful when it comes to the healthy development of the muscle and bone structure of the young one. This will surely put an ease on the worries about the baby’s growth.
There are number of things that a mom can do with her baby. Almost every movement can be converted into a healthy fitness exercise.
Moving the baby’s legs, bicycle style for example will help her heart work and increase blood circulation especially in the legs. Increased blood circulation means a slight increase in body temperature, so the baby will also feel warmer for a while after the exercise.
Another example can be the movement of the arms. This will help the baby relax her breathing, which will guarantee that the baby will have a constant intake of healthy portions of oxygen. Besides being good for the baby’s brain this will be also good for the baby’s sleep. And it is known for a fact that a good sleep in this stage encourages growth.
Another thing that will benefit the baby’s sleep is a fitness massage after a bath. This will be very enjoyable for both the mom and the baby and it will help the baby fall asleep.
Baby fitness is great for every baby and every mom. It is easy to do and it means a lot of fun.
