The Advantages of Tummy Time


For those of us active in infant care and the training of parents the topic of Tummy Time is central.  There is nothing that has more affect on the physical strengthening and development of your baby.  Unless your baby has the opportunity to push against the surface of her bed or the floor her trunk muscles (abdomen, chest, shoulders, etc) will be dalyed in development.

This is food for thought.  There are advocates on either side of the  argument.  But it is essential that your baby learn to enjoy and take advantage of time on her tummy.
