  • You can start within days of being home from the hospital. The earlier you start, and the longer they spend, the stronger their little muscles will get.

  • I'd say by 4 months.

  • Yeah, I agree with missanc's answer, the sooner you start, the faster they gain strength to hold their heads up good, and it builds up other muscles too that they'll need to be able to roll over and sit up eventually
