How To Tummy Time

Tummy time is crucial for healthy development of a baby’s strong neck and shoulder muscles and promotes motor skills and milestones! It can also prevent any flat spots from developing on your baby’s head (known as positional plagiocephaly). But, tummy time is not always easy or enjoyable for you or your baby! Your baby may be fussy or you may not know what to look for during this important time with your baby.
