Boppy Pillow for Nursing and Tummy Time

You can use these boppy pillows for nursing, but you can also use them for tummy time!  Just place the baby with their tummy over the pillow and their feet in the middle of the circle.  They can push up on their forearms, or just lay with their tummy or chest over the pillow and practice lifting and resting their head!

Interview with Jill Loftus OT from HonestOT Episode 45

On this episode of the Milestones podcast, I have a discussion and interview with Jill Loftus, MS, OTR/L.  She is an Occupational Therapist in the Denver, Colorado area who works with kids ages birth – 8 years old.  We discuss the pros and cons of Occupational Therapy home visits versus clinic visits with kids from a therapists’ perspective.

Sorry for any glitches in the audio! This was my first experience editing an interview so there are some places where things are off just a bit! And just some funny phone sounds coming through! Bear with me!

Sensory Processing and Preschools Episode 44

Today I discuss the dynamics between early intervention preschools, parents, and kids with sensory processing issues.  There are a lot of different perspectives coming into play with this setting, and it can be a challenge to get everyone on the same page.
