  • Mine did that. I stopped worrying about tummy time because it was a losing battle. He never crawled but went straight to walking at ten months.

  • My daughter HATED, LOATHED, DESPISED tummy time. I fretted about it for about 2 days, and then just caved, realizing in the end that she was just fine without it. It doesn't do anything for them that other play can't mimick. You just have to help him with proping his little head up and getting his neck muscle strength up, both of which are easy to do without tummy time.
