It helps families to feel confident while handling and communicating with their baby in the best way to optimise development.
Proper care of a child may facilitate baby motor development in a natural way. In infants’ physiotherapy, training of proper care - ‘handling’ is an inseparable element of NDT– Bobath therapy.
Parents are trained by the physiotherapist on:
-how to lift a baby as well as methods of carrying a child in a safe and healthy way
-how to dress and undress a baby
-which accessories for infant care are necessary
-appropriate play activities for an infant, so they can develop better cognitive and motor skills
-correct feeding techniques for a baby
-how to take care of a baby to facilitate their natural psycho-motor development
Parents will also learn how to handle their baby to make them feel more calm and safe
