A Helping Hand for Babies with Special Needs
The Crawligator is a valuable learning and development tool for all babies, but it has a unique opportunity to benefit babies and infants with special needs and developmental delays. Its design makes it easier for these children to use and gain the advantages of the physical development, natural crawling movements, gross motor skill and sensory of tummy time.
The Mobility Tool You've Been Waiting For!
Tummy Time is important to all babies, but some need a bit more help than others. That's where the Crawligator helps babies with special needs or developmental disorders thrive.
Crawligator facilitates play, a key factor in the early years of development in a childs life. It also compliments therapy programs by serving as a fun device for home environments. As a unique mobility device, Crawligator can help low tone babies achieve crawling development safely.
The Crawligator is proving to be a favorite tool of pediatric physical therapists for its ability to develop a baby's gross motor skills and muscle while promoting the natural movements that lead to crawling.
Tummy time is crucial to all babies and without it, developmental delays can persist and require more work and effort, even involving a pediatric physical therapist.
Babies who do not get enough time on their tummies can also develop tight neck muscles or neck muscle imbalance - a condition known as torticollis. Flat head syndrome also known as plagiocephaly can also happen from being on their backs for many hours, and from being in infant car seats, carriers, strollers, swings and bouncy seats.
Muscle development should begin right away with your baby to prevent delays in physical development and gross motor skills.
I was looking for a way to introduce crawling to kids with a motor delay. What I got was an inviting and comfortable way for kids to enjoy tummy time and initiate the basics of crawling and the excitement of movement.
I am a pediatric PT working with families in the community and homes. I’m excited about forward floor progression with Crawligator [and Crawligator affordability]. Your product is great!
I was looking for another way to make tummy time more fun and promote crawling. Pleased with the look of Crawligator and hoping to try soon when home visits are resumed.
I was looking for a new way to help infants learning to crawl, found the crawligator. I’m very excited to use it!
A Game Changer
"My 22month old niece was born with low muscle tone and a mitochondrial disorder. She has struggled with tummy time and is still working to learn how to crawl.
I was searching for any product that would help support her weight and keep her from rolling to the side while she learned the crawling motion when I stumbled on a review of the Crawligator. She works with a PT multiple times a week and her PT said that after one week that she can already see improvement in her crawling motion using the Crawligator!! This product is a game changer!
I would recommend the product to anyone but especially if your child is struggling with tummy time or has low tone."
