Watching this classic video of infants who have been allowed to move freely since their earliest months will help you to see the grace, agility and coping skills that infants can acquire on their own if not impeded by restrictive devices such as walkers, swings or bouncers. The video also shows how babies learn to roll over, sit, stand and walk naturally if they have not been propped or “helped” before they have matured enough to move in the way they are ready for. Magda Gerber explains how the philosophy of respect applies to infants’ motor development from birth to two years, the stage where infants’ sensory-motor experiences are paramount, and basic to all subsequent development.
