If you’re a new mom or dad home with your newborn baby, you know the importance of spending quality time bonding with your little one - you've done tons of research on it! And, because of said tons of research you guys also know - tummy time is an integral part not only to the bonding ritual but is also important for a baby’s healthy growth, development and wellness.
Why is tummy-time important? It helps prevent flat spots on the back of your baby's head. Makes neck and shoulder muscles stronger and improves your baby's motor skills. Tummy time helps promote sensory development, allowing babies to see the world from a whole new perspective. And, not to forget, tummy time is the best for bonding!
How to make tummy time fun? If you are looking to introduce tummy time, begin with a few minutes at a time, allowing your baby to get used to the new tummy down position. As your baby’s neck and upper body control improves, gradually increase the time spent on tummy time. Make it enjoyable by getting down to your baby’s level, so you are looking at each other and sing, smile or talk to keep your baby’s attention. Placing rattles or easy-to-grasp toys within reach can also encourage longer tummy-time play times. As your baby gets older, tummy time sessions can last longer, and you can have them more often through the day.
