  • well dont do it right after he has a bottle it may hurt his belly and of course milk makes them sleepy so wait untill hes good and awake and not sleepy or hungry and if that dosent work he may not be ready weather we like it or not its at there on pace but my daughter never really had tummy time she crawled for a month or 2 and was walking at 10 months

  • My son is 4 months as of tomorrow and it is only in the past few days that he doesn't screech his little lungs out as soon as I put him down! Bump!

  • Just keep trying, even if it is a minute or two. Make sure he doesn't have a full tummy - imagine how you feel when you have just eaten - you'd hate to lay on your tummy too :) lol But just keep trying.....he may not ever love it, but he may learn to tolerate it.

  • Don't worry about it. I had one boy who absolutely hated being on his tummy. He grew normally and is just fine now (he's9) so I wouldn't worry about it. :)
