Tummy Time: 0- 8 weeks

Monday, April 29, 2019, 6:00 PM

With the focus on putting your baby on their back to sleep, it’s easy to forget that tummy time is just as important. Helping your baby learn to be comfortable on their stomach is fundamental for timely motor, cognitive, and overall development. If tummy time is a struggle for you and your baby, or you are interested in learning how to make tummy time enjoyable, come and join us!   The class will consist of 60 minutes of playful demonstration and information including 15 minutes of question and answer from an experienced infant physical therapy specialist, Dr. Stefanie Morici! Topics to be covered include: Benefits of tummy time Parameters of tummy time (when to start, how long, where) What counts and doesn’t count as tummy time Alternative ways and positions to practice tummy time How to cope with a baby who hates tummy time Reasons why your baby may hate tummy time Tummy time safety How to play with your baby age appropriately What are the best toys to get for newborns Additional ways to prevent flat spots/helmets/container baby syndrome Early detection for torticollis & plagiocephaly Motor milestones 0-3 months This class is appropriate for babies  0-8 weeks old.  About Dr. Morici: Dr. Morici is a physical therapist who has specialized in infants and toddlers for the past 7 years since settling in the DC Metro Area. Her patient population has focused on babies with torticollis/plagiocephaly, gross motor delays, and toe walking. Dr. Morici founded her own private company in 2018, Infant Physical Therapy of Northern Virginia. She also is an early interventionist and has  performed over 1000 developmental evaluations in the district, so is well versed in overall milestones and global development. Dr. Morici is the mother of an almost 3 year old boy, Jack. When she isn’t helping babies, she is busy being her favorite thing – a mom!
