How to improve your baby’s brain and body development

Babies have a surprisingly fast learning curve, especially when lawlaw diapers do not hinder their movements. Unhindered movement is crucial to your baby’s brain and body development, so here are 5 play exercises you can try with your baby to help boost their growth!

Play is not just play! It has wide-ranging effects on your child’s development. When you focus on play and exercise—or playcersise!—you’ll be happy to discover an explosion of growth in your child’s mind and body.

Through play, children learn and discover more about the world and themselves. Play helps children to build confidence, feel loved, happy and safe, and learn about caring for others. It also allows them to improve their social skills at the same time develop language and communication skills.

“Movement can help children develop, not only motorically but emotionally and socially as well,” says G S Don Morris, an expert in this area. “Their well-being can be greatly enhanced if they are given simple foundations in all areas during their early years. These foundations will carry through as they continue to develop and learn at home and at school.”

Aside from improving children’s motor, social and emotional skills, playing is also essential for boosting their cognitive skills and early brain development. In fact, a newborn’s brain has 100 billion neurons that are not yet connected in networks—and these connections, which play can help to form and reinforce, are what really make the brain work.

"The experience of play changes the connections of the neurons at the front end of your brain," says Sergio Pellis, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. "And without play experience, those neurons aren't changed."

It is absolutely essential that parents understand the role that play (movement) has in the development of a child’s overall development. By being aware of play’s countless benefits to a child’s physiological, cognitive, social as well as emotional well-being, parents will be able to support their children and help them achieve their fullest potential.

The best part? Play comes naturally to every child, and it’s fun! There’s no better way to create a closer bond with your little one.

But here is an important thing to remember: Children must be free to move around to play, and if they wear bulky or lawlaw diapers, it hinders their movements. For example, if your toddler is chasing a ball while wearing a lawlaw diaper, the bulk between her legs makes her sakang. You don't want that to happen to your child, right?

When your child has less lawlaw diapers, they are free to move and enjoy play unhindered! Here are a few playcercises for your tiny tots that you can do from ages one to 24 months:
