We add this link to every evaluation we complete in early intervention. Access [to resources] is limited, and the quality of services is highly variability in Early Intervention.

The Pathways.org baby milestones app tracks your baby's Tummy Time

The Tummy Timer tracks baby’s daily exercise

Tummy Time is the period during the day your baby spends awake and on their stomach. It is a crucial exercise for baby’s motor, visual, and sensory development. The Pathways.org baby milestones app has several features that can help parents make sure their baby is doing Tummy Time:

  • The Tummy Timer makes tracking this exercise easier than ever!
  • As baby does short spurts of Tummy Time throughout the day, keep track of them on the timer.
  • Easily edit, add and delete Tummy Time entries at any time.
  • Baby should work up to doing at least an hour of Tummy Time a day by three months of age.
  • Baby does Tummy Time every day until they begin crawling.
