  • Mine wouldn't do tummy time. Forget it. Screamed his little head off. If he got 30 minutes in his enitre babyhood, that was a lot. He DESPISED tummy time and it wasn't worth worrying about as far as our doc was concerned.

    He never crawled. Straight to walking.

  • Almost constantly. They were all tummy sleepers and loved being on their stomachs.

  • Rarely.... but as a baby who was worn in a sling most of her infancy, she didn't need the tummy time. She crawled at 8 months and walked at 10.5 months.

  • a lot! I just lay a blanket in the floor and let him lay until he's hungry or needs changed or wants to cuddle a while.....

  • My daughter LOVED tummy time. She was prolly on her tummy more than anything and she was crawling by the time she was 4 or 5 months and walking at 7 1/2 months. She's now 16 months and has been running around since about 11months. She also slept on her belly since she was 3 months old and still does LOL

  • Catie hated tummy time, but we tried to do it for at least 10 minutes per day- 5 min 2x per day. Once she started rolling over at 3 months, tummy time didn't last very long. She is a tummy sleeper though, has been since she was 5 months old.
