Tyler's Tummy time

Tyler's tummy time


Since most infants sleep on their backs "Tummy Time" helps get babies off their backs. It provides a break for the occipital area or the back of their heads, and gives babies a chance to strengthen their neck muscles to prepare them for crawling. It also helps them get ready to push up, roll over, sit up and eventually stand. So when I read this article about "Tummy Time". I started Tyler's tummy time today for the first time. We put a blanket on the floor and put laid Tyler on his belly. he was their laying for a couple of minutes without complaining. He started lifting up his head and pushed his legs. He was about to fuss but then hubby gave him the pacifier and stayed on his belly for about 5 minutes until he fell asleep. I told hubby to pick him up since he shouldn't be sleeping while on his tummy time. Hubby teased me to just let Tyler sleep but I told him nope because he might do it again and ruin the purpose of tummy time. So, I picked him up and put him in his crib before his tummy time ends up with sleeping time.
