How to Know if Your Child is Overstimulated and What to Do About It!

The holiday season can be filled with excitement, family gatherings, parties, school concerts, trips to see Santa, vacations, and lots of presents and new toys….

Developmental Movement Patterns That Carry Us Through Life

As a Family Health Coach, a big part of the work I do with my clients is educating and helping with their baby’s and children’s development.

Whether that be physical development through reaching milestones, or helping with introduction to solids, or even helping navigate through their baby’s sleep development. As babies grow up, into big kids, I also work with them on more specific development of fine and gross motor skills, as well as development of social-emotional regulation skills, attention, focus, and more, so that they can become functioning little humans and reach their highest potential in their daily lives.

Today I wanted to talk about physical development, and specifically about the 4 main developmental movement patterns that help us achieve our motor milestones, and literally carry us through life.
