Tummy time is a designated time which the parent make a conscious effort to have the child spend a certain amount of time on their “tummy”.

This helps babies with development physically as they get used to “pushing up” with their arms to raise their heads.

It encourages them to strengthen their neck muscles to be able to hold their heads up and move them to look at various things.

Babies from birth upto 6 months or more sometimes tend to spend a lot of time on their backs.

They are safest when sleeping on their backs, and they are often in strollers, carriers, and being held the majority of the time in a somewhat reclined position.

This can cause flat shaped skull towards the back of the head as their skulls are quite soft and still forming. This also causes the babies to focus on only using certain muscles and movements.

The “tummy time” can start with short spurts until the baby gets used to it and is more comfortable.

Babies who have any kind of acid reflux might be more upset when put on their tummy as it can make the issue worse.

Tummy time is an important step in a young baby’s development.

It is placing your baby on its stomach while he is awake (supervised of course) and allowing baby to move around freely.

Tummy time helps to strengthen baby’s muscles and helps with co-ordination and other sensors. Eventually after some time, baby will start to try to roll over. This is the start of independence and a sign that your baby is getting ready for movements such as pulling himself along the floor, sitting up, crawling, standing up and eventually walking.

TIPS:

  • Start with short periods of tummy time very early on (1 - 2 minutes to start), extend the length of time as baby starts to enjoy it.
  • Make tummy time apart of your daily routine.
  • Play with baby during tummy time. This will help to extend the time that baby is happy to be on his stomach.
  • Surround baby with stimulating toys, books etc. to help engage him. It will also help to encourage movements such as reaching and rolling.
