  • Seems like forever...

    I think my son was about two months old when he started to lift his head during tummy time.

    I would have to look at my journal to know when he ate 3-4 oz. If it's really important to you to know, PM me and I'll look it up tomorrow morning.

  • Lifting his head up? At about 3 weeks. You're supposed to start tummy time within the first week of their life. 10 minute intervals several times a day, unless he gets upset. Then pick him up and try again later. The reason tummy time is so important is because it helps strengthen the neck muscles which teaches babies how to lift their head up and hold it up. It also teaches them how to crawl and I heard it has a connection to them learning how to talk. It was something I heard on the internet so do some research before you take my word on it. And my son was eating 3-4oz at around your son's age. Now at 4.5 months he eats about 4-5oz per bottle unless I feed him cereal or baby food then he eats about 3-4oz of formula along with his baby food.

  • My son is 19 days old but would barely be 37 week gestation. He already eats 3 or 4 oz and tries to hold his head up. Is that normal?

  • My son started out drinking 3-4 oz's. He was a big eater from the beginning. My Pedi said to start with tummy time right away. Don't hesitate to start tummy time. My son wasn't too interested in it for long. He started lifting his head up within the first month, but he started to be able to hold his head for long periods at about 3 mo. My son is 11mo's old now, so I'm kind of guessing right now. That was a long time ago it seems.
