Start on hands and knees, with your baby on his back below you. Lift your left arm until it's parallel to the floor. Next, extend your right leg behind you, parallel to the floor. Hold for five seconds, then return to start. Repeat with opposite arm and leg. Do five times on each side.

Sit on a mat, legs together and extended in front of you. Lay your baby on his back along your legs, and support him with your hands. Slowly bend forward at the hips as far as you can. Hold for ten seconds, give him a kiss, then return to an upright sitting position. Repeat ten times.
