The Great İmportance of the Ready Environment…
Your baby’s turn will make the landscaping much more important. As a matter of fact, being able to turn also means being able to fall or reach harmful objects after a while. Therefore, taking into account your baby’s range of motion, necessary precautions must be taken beforehand. For example, you should keep in mind that your baby may move suddenly while changing diapers.
One of the best environmental arrangements you can do for your baby is to leave him on a not too hard floor, to provide a space for him to move, and if possible, to place a mirror next to this movement area. When you organize such a movement area, it will be possible to support him to make different movements and develop in different areas by hanging some toys from above. For example, the mobiles you will hang will help the eye muscles to develop on the one hand, and encourage him to lie down on the other. During this period, your baby can now follow rotating objects. Therefore, mobiles or mobiles are still enjoyable toys for them. Usually 15 cm from their face. They can track a distant object 180o.
