B. Big Mat Conditioning On Belly or Sitting Up

Big Mat Conditioning

Why: To practice Breath Control and for young infants, spending time in the prone position (on the stomach)  can aid with achieving certain milestones such as rolling over, sitting up, and crawling!  For older infants and toddlers sitting on the Big Mat can aid with balance and comfort!

How:  Place the children on a large mat on their tummy or in a seated position facing the outside of the mat.  Utilize a watering can or cup to sprinkle water over the body, head and face.
