tripod position sitting

The tripod sitting position is when a baby sits with their legs in front of them and their hands behind them to support their body. This position is often seen as a transitional stage between sitting with full support and sitting without support. Babies typically start to develop tripod sitting skills at around 6-7 months of age. At this stage, babies have gained enough upper body strength and control to sit up with some support from their arms. As babies continue to practice and develop their sitting skills, they will gradually rely less on their arms for support and be able to sit up unsupported. This usually occurs between 7-9 months of age, although some babies may reach this milestone earlier or later. We Little Explorers Therapy provides skilled therapy services to achieve Little Explorers' sitting goals by Proprioceptive activities: Physical therapists may use activities that provide input to the baby's muscles and joints, such as rocking back and forth or side to side, to help the baby develop a sense of where their body is in space. This can help the baby gain more control over their movements and maintain the tripod sitting position. Core strengthening exercises: Physical therapists may use exercises to strengthen the baby's core muscles, such as tummy time activities or activities that involve reaching and grasping while in the tripod sitting position. These exercises can help the baby gain more stability and control over their movements. Balance activities: Physical therapists may use activities that challenge the baby's balance, such as placing toys just out of reach or using a therapy ball, to help the baby develop balance and coordination while in the tripod sitting position. Postural support: Physical therapists may use pillows, rolled towels, or other supportive equipment to help the baby maintain the tripod sitting position while they work on developing their strength and control. Parent education: Physical therapists may provide parents with tips and techniques for working with their baby at home to improve their tripod sitting skills, such as providing supervised practice time in the tripod sitting position.


Completing the milestone of rolling from supine (lying on their back) to prone (lying on their stomach) and from prone to supine is an important part of a baby's gross motor development. On average, babies begin to roll from supine to prone at around 4-6 months of age. Rolling from prone to supine typically occurs a few weeks later, at around 5-7 months of age. However, every baby is different, and some may reach this milestone earlier or later. It's important to note that babies usually start by rolling in one direction before learning to roll in both directions. Rolling is a complex skill that requires the baby to have sufficient strength and coordination in their neck, back, and trunk muscles. Positioning: Physical therapists may use different positions to encourage rolling such as placing the baby on their side and gently guiding them to roll onto their back or stomach. The therapist may also use a rolled-up towel or positioning aids to support the baby's body and help them feel more comfortable. Tummy Time: Tummy time is an essential exercise to build strength in the baby's upper body, neck, and back muscles. Physical therapists may recommend tummy time exercises and provide tips to make tummy time more enjoyable for the baby. Encouraging Reach and Grasp: Physical therapists may use toys or objects to motivate the baby to reach and grasp, which can help develop the baby's motor skills and coordination. Using Visual Cues: Physical therapists may use visual cues such as bright and colorful objects or toys to get the baby's attention and motivate them to roll. Assisted Rolling: Physical therapists may use gentle techniques such as hand-over-hand assistance to guide the baby's rolling movements and help them feel more comfortable during the process. Environmental Set-Up: Physical therapists may adjust the baby's environment to promote independent rolling, such as placing toys slightly out of reach to encourage the baby to roll over and reach for them.
