Games for 0 - 3mths Tummy Time from birth
This is increasingly important to do from birth now that guidelines recommend that we put babies to sleep on their backs.
It is important for them to help develop their back muscles and to help reduce the occurrence of flat head.
Try to gently roll your baby onto his / her tummy on a play mat or on a towel on the floor. Some babies absolutely love it and will quickly start lifting up their head. Some are not interested at all and may even cry.
If your baby is unhappy, gently roll him/her onto their back and still give them a big smile and lots of praise. Keep practicing it a couple of times a day, or more if your baby loves it.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BABY UNATTENDED ON THEIR FRONT – IF THEY VOMIT IT COULD BE DANGEROUS.
