Tummy Time for Infants

Another helpful activity during infancy is tummy time.  When they spend so much time on their backs/in arms, time on their stomachs require them to develop muscles in their necks and eventually arms (as they push up).  J wasn’t wild about tummy time at first.  I found he did much better if he could see me, so I would place him on our bed or an ottoman and then kneel down on the floor in front of him.  He was fine as long as I was talking with him.  We started out with just a short amount of time (3 or 4 minutes) and worked up.
