1. Put the favorite toy of your baby just out of range. To help your baby move forward, you can talk to your baby and encourage him to get the toy, or say something like, “Come on, get your toy.” Your baby should start rocking back and forth, scooting his body towards the toy, or just begin moving closer to the object. Just make sure your baby isn’t frustrated or angry that he doesn’t have his toy.
2. Have your child crawl up to you. You can also walk away from baby a few feet, go down to baby’s floor, and say, “Come here! Come to mommy / daddy!” Again, if they get upset, go to them so they don’t scream. This can help your baby to move toward you, and it’s not so scary to see that crawling and getting down on all fours. He might want to mirror you and get closer to you, and this is another great way to get your baby motivated to move forward.
Hold up their torso when they move around when they start moving (but not crawling).Place a mirror in front of your daughter.
3. Keep or put a mirror in front of your baby about 10 inches (25.4 cm) in a position where the baby can clearly see his or her reflection. Baby will want to see him / herself better, closer, and may attempt to crawl forward to do so. It may be even more successful if you get your baby used to playing with mirrors in general.
4. Crawl next to your child. You can also crawl alongside your baby instead of making your baby crawl towards you. Both you and your child can move to the toy, the mirror, or another parent. This will inspire your baby to do what you do and make him feel less lonely. He’s going to feel more like he’s playing me a gaz and having to do what mom and dad or sibling are doing.
You can also inspire your baby to crawl forward by having an older sibling crawl next to your infant.
5. Know the limitations of your infant. When the baby starts to scream or seems to be upset, do not pressure him to continue trying. Alternatively, wait to try again until the next day. If you’re trying to force your baby to crawl if he’s not ready or if he just doesn’t feel it, then you’re going to delay the process and make your baby associate crawl with a bad time. Alternatively, as a fun, encouraging practice, your baby will look at crawling.
Don’t surrender. Even though baby can tolerate a few seconds at a time being on the floor, try again later or the next day.
6. Encourage your baby after the time has come to crawl. Once you’ve finished teaching your baby to crawl for the day, be sure to give lots of love and motivation to your kid. Don’t be frustrated if your baby isn’t getting too far. Give your baby plenty of physical love and care, a warm bottle if he needs one, a toy, or a treat if he’s old enough to eat them. Your baby should have positive time-crawling associations and be excited to come back for more.
It goes without saying that if your baby crawled toward a car, at the end of the test, you would give it to him, even if he couldn’t reach it on his own. He should be satisfied with learning to crawl, not frustrated. This will make your baby even more excited to try to crawl around the next time!
You will rejoice until your baby is able to crawl and explore your house! And then get your house ready to be baby-proof!
