  • Have you tried putting either a small and long pillow or a rolled up towel under his chest during tummy time? It really just takes. Putting them on their bellies a lot for them to do it. If he's showing you he can lift his head at other times, then just be persistent with tummy time and I'm positive he'll lift his head there as well.
