Just a thought....

Tummy time is an important activity for young infants. It is so important because it allows babies to strengthen and gain control of their head, shoulders, and abdomen. Building strength and control early in life is the basis for learning later motor skills such as rolling over, sitting, crawling, and eventually walking. If your baby resists tummy time, try several brief (1-2 minutes) sessions a day and gradually work up to longer periods of time. Babies should spend approximately 15-20 minutes a day in tummy time.
