  • I would sit my son on my lap him, facing me and wrap his hands around my fingers and do basically sitting pull ups - he didn't have a real problem with needing neck strength but it was nice face to face time -

  • hmm i dont know my kids came out with strong necks and upper bodies.. my oldest at 3 months was getting on all 4''s.. he could also scoot himself backwards..

    maybe try a tummy time mat? prop a pillow under her chest so shes not flat down?
