Mom & Infant Yoga
There are many benefits to mom and infant yoga that benefit both mom and baby.
It is safe, according to experts, to begin participating in a mom and infant yoga program when the infant has reached six weeks of age or when they have gained better neck control. Three months old is when babies, typically, have full head and neck control. As with all exercise, you should discuss the program with your doctor and your child’s pediatrician.
