Is it normal for babies to not like tummy time?
We hear it all the time. My baby doesn't like tummy time. There are so many reasons this could be the case. However, don't worry. We are here to help. Let's start with some tips and tricks. Doing tummy time on the floor may be too hard for your baby, but don't fear, there are other ways to make to work on tummy time. I bet your baby will even enjoy tummy time! If tummy time flat on the floor is making your baby cry, try rolling a blanket and putting it under your baby's chest. This takes some pressure off and makes tummy time a little easier. However, sometimes this is still too hard. Don't worry, we can break it down again! Let's try having the baby lay on your chest and laying down. This way your baby can see your face and has more support. Oh no, my baby is still upset. That's ok, this may still be too difficult. You can try holding your baby while you are slightly reclined in sitting. I'd say try sitting reclined at 45 degrees. You might have to play with it and start closer to 10 degrees reclined and progress all the way to floor tummy time. We hope this helps!
