Family Matters: Tummy Time


Tummy TimeSomewhere during the first 6 months, your baby will learn to roll over on their own. For a lot of babies, this means they spend less time on their tummies.

However, more tummy time can strengthen baby’s arms, neck, shoulders and torso, and even help them get moving as all those body parts are essential elements for scooting and crawling.

Encourage baby to stay on his tummy by providing stimulation in the form of books, pictures, colors and textures that baby can easily access from a prone position.

You can also do “baby sit-ups” with him by having him lie on his back, letting him grip your fingers with his hands and helping him “sit up” into a seated position (you might want to do this on a bed or pillow in case he lets go and falls back).

You can also make a game of tummy time by moving different fun objects around baby’s field of vision so he has to look up, look around or push himself up more to see where the toy went.
