My daughter is 15 weeks and we've been trying really hard with the whole "tummy time" but everytime we try she fusses NONstop - she just lays there and sucks on her hand. Any advise to try and get her to enjoy a little more would be great.Answer Question

Thank you, I appreciate it. So many people put so much pressure on "you MUST give her tummy time all the time - its crucial she gets it from the beginning" So its really nice to hear other mothers who say to wait a little longer or don't MAKE her do it. I've been told also when she's ready it'll happen.

Yeah you better watch out, if you don't give your baby tummy time, they will never learn how to do anything! One day you'll find yourself with a 20 year old laying on their backs not walking or talking because you did not put them on their tummies, LOL.
Seriously don't stress about it. My oldest hated tummy, so I didn't do it and she hit all her milestones early or on time and she turned out just fine. Don't let people scare you, every baby is different.
