Possum is at the age that she is starting to sit up somewhat independently. I’m still not comfortable with allowing her to sit without support behind her because it became clear that when she had had enough of sitting she would launch herself backwards. Argh!
I found that as soon as she lost interest in one type of ball I was able to introduce another, which would have her play for a few minutes more. How wonderful, she was balancing for the longest period of time and without any support. Win!
Thank you so kindly for reading about this simple play idea for babies. I hope it works as well for you as it did for us.
