Baby’s brain develops through crawling. This makes your baby smarter, more relaxed, and ready for life!
You want the best for your baby. Whether you are a parent, movement educator, or day-care worker, this book is for you. Babies “think” with their bodymind and grow their brains with crawling.
- Month by month development
- Hands on tools to help baby
- Clear theory of development
Your baby already “knows” how to crawl. But difficult births, or not being allowed on the “tummy time” position interrupt this development.
- Learn infant developmental actions
- Have more fun with baby when you know their movement language.
- You can help! Use hands on support to help your baby grow
Baby’s crawling prepares them to succeed in school and sports
- Infants who crawl are more coordinated
- Handle stress better
- Can adapt and learn with less frustration
- Will be happier and more content
Increase your skills, be more present, and help babies release distress patterns. Use developmental movement to support infant brain and bodymind learning.
Annie Brook has worked with infants for over 20 years. Her classes fill up with infant care givers and parents eager to learn these skills.
“Rabbit’s clever,” said Pooh thoughtfully. “Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit’s clever.”“And he has Brain.”“Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit has Brain.”There was a long silence.“I suppose,” said Pooh, “that that’s why he never understands anything.” ? A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
“Brain without integrated body creates a less successful child, teen, or adult. This book creates skillful parents and care-givers who can help infants in the very beginning years.
Testimonial: (Courtney Lewis, Director of New Mexico Association for Infant Mental Health)
“Annie presented on ‘Understanding The Effects of Perinatal Trauma’ in Albuquerque for the members of the New Mexico Association for Infant Mental Health. The training was fantastic! Annie used both neurological research and experiential activities throughout her training. Her ability to use metaphor to explain complex issues such as the development of a dysregulated infant nervous system was very helpful in expanding our knowledge base to the clients we serve. She also focused on the service providers’ capacities to regulate ourselves in the midst of working with complex and difficult families. As an expecting mother, and a Clinical Infant Mental Health Specialist, I found the information on infant development, working with mothers who have experienced perinatal trauma, and how to support a successful birth process very insightful.”
How this book about infant development got started!
Wendy Sager-Evanson, a nurse, community organizer, and BMC practitioner in Truth or Consequences, NM pleaded for services when her community lost funding for infant care. My heart responded, and over the course of 4 years, we created interest for a local center. I offered free workshops, taught child care workers, spoke at the Kiwanis club, presented at the Teen Program, and now we are celebrating. The WildFlowers Center (Truth or Consequences, NM). is the place for moms and babies to share, grow, and learn together. Congratulations to Wendy and her team! A percentage of proceeds from this book are donated to WildFlowers. If you would like to be an annual funder of this grassroots effort to help rural moms, please go to: www.bountifulbabies.org“
I crawled with straight arms and legs. This was a disaster in terms of internal patterns. I have spent years re-wiring my brain and bodymind, and know the value of this work. Born premature, I needed the extra support of developmental movement to reshape my brain. Now I share this work so baby’s can get the start they need.
