Why not put that extra energy that keeps you awake to good use with some perfect sports for your little one. Ideal for those aged from two to six years, baby sports require nothing more than energy and a good sense of humour. There is a whole range of activities on offer, for all ages. Take a look at some of the best options for your budding little athlete.
Make a splash
One of the sports your baby is bound to enjoy is swimming. From six months old, you can start taking them to the local swimming baths. Some mums can be nervous about the idea of taking their little ones to such a big pool, but there are little risks if you know how to approach it.
Usually, the water in the baby pool is nice and warm, perfect for easing them in. Stay close to your baby and keep them well supported in the water so they feel safe and secure. Enjoy these shared moments there will be lots of laughter and a real feeling of togetherness.
Round and round
Round and round your little one will love pedalling along learning how to become a real cyclist. For very little ones, tricycles are the best option. With three wheels to support them, they will move about freely and safely. Older children will prefer a proper two-wheel bicycle, fitted with stabilisers at first to keep them from toppling over.
Calm and Zen
Yoga can be a great deal of fun for babies. They will discover new postures and positions, while plenty of stretching will ensure excellent body development. These exercises will also help them to find their balance. No need to miss out- there are plenty of classes where you can join them too, your baby will try to imitate you and the results will be quite simply adorable! Namaste.
