I know several very simple, but good exercises. The firsr called "Grip" - it is an easy arm stretching exercise for your newborn. "Chest Cross", a similar exercise, develops your baby's range of motion while allowing him to experience different movements of arms.

One of the most favourite exercise of my nephew is in the form of bicycle ride. As I know most infants love the feel of their legs circling in and out like when a person is riding a bycycle. :D

One more is "Pull Up", the newborn equivalent of a sit up.Thus, you help your baby move from a prone position to sitting upright.
