How long and how often should I do tummy time?

I have a 10 week old son and we're doing tummy time, and he is doing great. How long and how many times a day should we do it?

  • If he's doing tummy time at 10 weeks he's a strong guy! Some suggest starting at 3-4 months but he's obviously ready. If he gets bored you can use an exercise ball or get face to face w/ him to entertain him. I would try to get him a couple minutes per day or as much as he would like.
