I tend to have my exercise ball in our family room in my attempt to get back in shape after having my baby. It tends to sit in the corner really more then anything. Little C has become very interested in everything and the other day he maneuvered his way to the ball. Only then did it occur to me that he would probably enjoy playing on the exercise ball. I use it all the time with my kiddos at school to promote sensory input while working on motor skills at the same time. So, I gave it a shot with C and he thought baby ball play was the best. I used our big mirror so he could see himself while playing on the ball. He would look at himself then me then himself and smile. He was quite proud of himself!
If you want to try this with your baby be sure that your baby has sufficient head control and is of appropriate age to play on the exercise ball.
