Newborn | Bicycle Ride


With your baby lying down, take hold of both of legs and pedal them as if your little one is biking. Play music or sing while doing so, and pedal your baby’s legs to the rhythm of the beat.

The Science

The bicycling motion has numerous benefits for babies. In addition to alleviating infant gassiness, it can help your baby coordinate large muscle movements. Further, singing and using a rhythmic motion to bicycle helps stimulate the building blocks for language later on.
