My baby just HATES being on her tummy so I haven't been forcing 'tummy time' as much as I have been. But my pediatrician told me recently how that tummy time is important because it leads to reading developments later on (somehow). And my brother (whose in college) had told me that he learned in class that if babies learn to walk before crawling then they will have a hard time distinguishing left from right. Have any of you heard of these regarding crawling/Tummy Time or some other future development problems similar to these? Since then I've been pushing Tummy Time again (though she throws a fit each time).
