My daughter has developmental delays and we are always looking for ways to prop her up to make tummy time easier and encourage the use of her hands and arms. In addition, we are always looking for ways to promote the positioning of her knees underneath her...the Crawligator does both. In the past we rolled up blankets, used my leg or a couch cushion but none of these promote movement in the way the Crawligator does. We see physical therapy twice a week and I showed our PT the product and she agreed that it does the things we are trying to promote. As a bonus the product is so fun looking that my toddler is very interested in it. Having him involved always increases enthusiasm and duration of tummy time, so it's a win win that he loves the look of the Crawligator. At the moment she isn't able to make it move, we're solely using it to provide support under her chest so that she can explore with her hands and learn to put weight on her hands. It positions her knees perfectly to give her the feel of what's to come and I'm excited to see her discover the movement aspect as well.
