3 Top Tips for Tummy Time

  1. Tummy time can begin early while on Mummy or Daddy’s chest during cuddles.

2. Position baby on their tummy so that they are comfortable using a thick pillow. This helps to make tummy time easier than being face down on the floor.

3. Provide Toys to entertain baby while they are on their tummy. Using colourful toys which capture baby’s eye gaze and attention  will help baby to keep their head up.
