From an infant, a child learns his body and then goes through the process of changing position, which is associated, among other things, with learning to maintain balance. These changes require not only muscle development, but also the maturity of the areas in the cerebral cortex responsible for movement, and the integration of all body parts, senses, and balance-coordinating functions. The GOOD WOOD rocker supports general physical fitness and its ability to perform all activities related to movement. In short, the rocker helps to wisely educate and improve the child’s motor skills, which has a positive effect on the child’s sensory integration.
Are you wondering from what age the rocker will work? Well, it can serve children (and others) from birth. Get to know the functions of the rocker.
The obvious use of the rocker is the cradle function. Mom and baby can swing on the rocker, but when the baby is bigger, you can put it alone.
Gentle rocking calms down, calms down, helps to soothe crying, and puts the baby to sleep. The rhythmic movements of the rocker remind the little one of the time spent in his mother’s belly – that’s why babies love rocking so much. Rocking a rocker is an alternative to rocking your baby in your arms. It is also worth mentioning that rocking has a positive effect on the development of the child’s nervous system, namely the vestibular system. Research shows that rhythmic forward and backward movements adequately stimulate the vestibular system of the infant’s brain, which is responsible for proper muscle tone and body posture, balance and the ability to concentrate, and additionally supports perception. Thanks to this, the child will develop better in the future.
Another function of the rocker for children is the EDUCATIONAL FRAME – the so-called “Baby gym”.
Thanks to the wide spacing of the rocker’s skids, it is stable and will not restrict the baby’s movements in any way. The design of the rocker makes the frame made of it safe and durable, and at the same time not overwhelming. Contrasting, but mild colors of the frame stimulate the baby’s eyesight, and the possibility of hanging pendants on it will encourage the baby to move its hands and feet, which affects the development of its motor skills.
What’s all this for? From the very first moment, the child focuses on development. The first important challenge of every baby is to reach the toy hanging over his head. This task requires practice, hundreds of attempts until it is successful. Pull the handle in the right direction, reach far enough, hit the toy with your hand, close your hand at the right moment and finally grab the toy you want. It’s just work! During this time, a permanent trace is formed in the child’s brain – a neural connection that the child will use every time he reaches for something.
We believe that wisely supporting the development of a child intended by nature is the best thing that can be given to him. That is why GOOD WOOD was created!
