Physical development

Physical development

The Fisher-Price Sit me up floor seat is useful equipment for parenting that besides the practical and entertaining use, offers development for the baby based on the upright seat and the two linkable toys. The upright seat that supports the baby’s back makes the baby able to observe the surrounding environment and interact with the people and the surrounding nearby.

This makes the baby feel safe, comfortable and secure but at the same time, it encourages the baby’s curiosity that is also motivated by the attached toys on the floor seat. When seated in the Sit-Me-Up-Floor Seat babies are eager to reach for the toys and try to pull them up. This is a good practice for the gross motor development of the babies.

The seat is recommended to be used once the babies have developed reasonable head control and strength of the neck muscles but it also gives babies the self-support. It is a nice option for a safe place for your baby to be seated and feel like part of the world and develop core muscles instead of laying the baby flat on the back all the time. This seat is also a great way for exercise since babies when seated move around with the legs and there is enough space raised from the floor for this kind of activity.

The seat holds the baby in proper position –upright, which is provided by the high back of the floor seat.

The seat itself is pretty deep and the leg holes are not tight but provide enough space for the legs. However, it’s worth mentioning that it is much easier to put the baby inside but it is much harder to take the baby out of the floor seat. The high back of the floor seat, the wide base, the raised seat above the ground, and the removable cover that can be machine washed are all characteristics that provide safety and security for the baby. The safety is enhanced by the toys which are chewable and not small so there is no danger of choking hazard.
