Starting tummy time soon after birth and incorporating it into your daily routine for short periods can make a significant difference in your baby’s development.
Tummy time is important because it helps strengthen your baby’s neck, shoulder, and arm muscles.
Muscles they need to sit, crawl and eventually walk.
Your baby might not like it at first, but with the right toys and practice tummy time will be enjoyable for you both.
2. Place fun toys out of reach to encourage your baby to lift its head or start moving.
3. Try different surfaces and positions, such as placing a tummy time pillow or cozy lounger under your baby's chest or tummy time on a soft play mat.
4. Make tummy time more enjoyable by singing songs, talking to your baby, or blowing bubbles for them to watch.
5. Take a break if your baby becomes upset and try again later.
