  • I would bet that this is something that she will eventually get better at. We couldn't do tummy time for a long time due to sever reflux. She was really good at holding her head up, but she puked when she went to her belly. I tried to avoid tummy time and worked on sitting instead.

  • what about propping her up with a bobby pillow under her armpits? Or have her do tummy time on YOU?

  • My daughter was opposite with her reflux, she couldnt' be on her back. She was a tummy sleeper from day one. Is your little one on any reflux meds?
