  • Whenever we can. She doesn't always like it so I pick her back up. If she is going string, I let her hang out on her tummy until she is done. We don't time it.

  • Tummy Time for us was three times a day for 10 mins. until she gets stronger and then we did tummy time for an hour twice a day. Once she got stronger she did it on her own.
