my 10 week old has been trying to get up by herself!!!! is this normal?

i think she is still very little for this but she has been lifting her legs and back a little as if she wants to get up, its so funny seeing her do that, or why is she doing this? has anyone experienced this?

  • that's why tummy time is important. it helps build strong muscles. It's basically baby workout time! yes it's normal

  • so she is doing it because she has tummy time or because she doesn't get enough? lol sorry didnt get it

  • She is doing it because she is growing. As they grow they learn new things and want to move around more. Giving her more tummy time would just help make her muscles stronger and help her make new achievements like rolling over. :)
