The Reachard leggings encourage babies to pull their legs up, strengthen their stomach muscles and prepare them for sitting.
Reachard is the kind of abdominal muscle trainer that perfectly prepares for turning and sitting. The training is assisted by the attention-grabbing, protruding ribbon „antennae”, which tempt the curious toddler and encourage him or her to catch and bend the legs. The quality time spent exploring the hand-leg path is priceless for both parents and babies.
We have created our leggings from a soft cotton knitted fabric dedicated to the little ones, designed by Magda with original prints by illustrator Karolina.

Abdominal muscles and grasping exercise?
The abdominal muscles have an enormous role to play in a child’s development, acting as a stabiliser for the trunk and spine. They allow for correct posture shaping and the ability to move.
When babies lift their legs and try to catch them, they exercise the abdominal muscles and work against the force of gravity, among other things. It is worth mentioning that this is a great effort for them. In this type of activity, the belly muscles work eccentrically (the muscles expand and contract at the same time) and this is the best form of work for this body part.
The Reachard leggings invite the child to pull their legs up and play a hard but also fun game of grabbing. The intriguing design elements at the knees help with the grip exercise, while the contrasting prints encourage the training of the stomach muscles. If you notice that this activity seems to be too difficult for your little one, place a rolled-up blanket under his or her knees. This will make the knee elements more visible and encourage the baby to pull the legs up to the tummy.
Exploring together? Helping while allowing the child to take charge.
Experiential learning is important in a baby’s development. Toddlers learn when they do something themselves, not when parents do it for them. Therefore, it is worth ensuring that the child’s space is motivating for him or her. The idea is not to leave the child alone, but to give them the chance to explore on their own.
The Reachard leggings have been created to support the child’s development. The garment naturally accompanies the baby at all times, so there is not much need for the parent’s involvement during exploration. Thanks to our shorts, babies can learn about themselves and their bodies by touching the legs and grasping the extra catchy elements
