I accidentally posted this under toddlers ages 1-2...I was told by my dr. to give my son "tummy time" every day, 3 times a day for however long I can stand to hear him cry since he hates it and cries the whole time. It's really hard to listen to him cry and he looks like his face is getting smooshed into the blanket on the floor and he hates it..I try to do it every day at least once but can't stand to listen to him cry. I don't wanna sabotage him by not doing it and making him not be able to meet his milestone (crawling). Any ideas for how to do tummy time to make it fun for him and for him to like it and not cry? Please help, thanks!

I personally think 3 months is to young for "tummy time". You doctor is stupid.

We used a boppy pillow under the chest. With being propped up, my kids did better. I'd put toys in front of them so they had something to look at and reach for. The other thing I did with DD was to lay on my back and bend my legs so my knees were near my chest. I'd support her on my shins. I wasn't able to do this with my twins as it's hard to supervise the other and DD from that position.
