Read along with the video below:

You can begin Tummy Time soon after baby is born. Start with a few minutes, working up to an hour a day, in spurts, by 3 months of age.

  • Link Tummy Time with familiar activities such as diapering, bathing, or even playing. When your baby is happy, fed, and awake, it’s the ideal time to do some Tummy Time.
  • Move into positions slowly.
  • Talk positively!
  • Pat/rub baby’s back to soothe them.
  • Do Tummy Time on both sides/switch arms.
  • Don’t give baby a chance to get really mad or feel “stuck”.
  • Baby loves your face and voice, try using this to encourage them!

Every bit of Tummy Time makes a difference. Tummy Time should be fun time!
