  • As much as she wanted even if that was onlty a few seconds. Baywearing in a wrap/sling/mei tai is also excellent for torso strength!

  • Pretty much every time I put my dd on the floor she got at least a few minutes of tummy time. She loved it though. She was a very early roller and is still ahead on crawling, sitting, pulling herself to standing. I was told 15 minutes 2x a day minimum but if you can get your LO to go for more i highly suggest it.
