Move Baby Move has emerged as a focal organisation where young babies’ movement patterns and milestones can be supported and encouraged through a selection of researched movement activities.
Move Baby Move was created in 2014 by early years infant movement specialist Bren Lovell. Bren’s philosophy is based on the sharing of infant motor development ideas that have been ‘brewing’ during her many years teaching experiences in preschool movement programs, lecturing in Early Childhood at University and studying towards a PhD on infant movement milestones.
Jess Lovell is a fellow co-director of Move Baby Move. Jess is an artist and a mother. She has seen first-hand the link between movement and the developing brain as her children were some of the initial participants of the first Move Baby Move initiative.
Move Baby Move is the producer of the Baby Activity Program. The BAP is available in two formats: Baby Activity Program A4 booklet, and the Baby Activity Program app available through iTunes (android app to come).
The Baby Activity Program is presented in four, age-appropriate coloured movement sections. The program includes 39 activities, created from Bren’s research, to support the natural progression of the baby’s nervous system towards achieving movement milestones. These milestones include rolling over, commando crawling and hands and knees crawling.
The Baby Activity Program includes many ways to experience safe, fun, creative and important tummy time interactions as well as specifically selected activities for vestibular (response to gravity) stimulation.
Both the A4 booklet and the ‘action’ app are particularly appealing to fathers, encouraging a variety of ways to interact physically with their babies.
