Offer Support. To help your baby strengthen her muscles and develop balance, hold her as she bounces while standing.

Encourage Tummy Time Play. Place your baby on her stomach. When she is able to get up on her hands, put favorite toys just out of reach to motivate her to move and grab them.

Foster Coordination. Let your baby tap blocks together, bang spoons on pots and pick up finger foods herself. This will help sharpen her vision and hand-eye coördination.

Baby Proof. Use gates to keep stairways off-limits until your baby has mastered crawling. Even then she should be closely supervised. You can help her practice with foam blocks.
