The Benefits of Tummy Time
Tummy time has lots of benefits for your growing baby.
Lying on their front helps your baby to strengthen their back and shoulders, as well as giving them a chance to move their arms and legs in a different way.
Tummy time will also strengthen your baby’s neck, which will give them greater head control, which means that your baby will be able to look up and around them. Being able to see things around them will develop your baby’s coordination and ability to follow things with their eyes.
