Handling and Positioning Techniques for Infants — How to carry your baby and encourage your baby to sit, stand and walk.


Babies are sensitive to their new early environment. Therefore, it is important to help them to adapt to this new environment. Correct handling and positioning is important for physiological development of muscles, bones and all parts of the body. It is also important for normal development of gross motor skills and neurologic development.

During this course, parents will receive information about safe and comfortable handling and positioning of their baby in order to facilitate movement and development of gross motor skills. They will also receive advice on safe positioning during the day and night (in baby’s crib, stroller, car seat etc.) and advice on safe positioning during breastfeeding and feeding.
