My son was the same way all i did was i kept laying on the couch & putting him on my stoach & chest eventually when he figured out he can roll over now he doesnt want to be anywhere but on his tummy so just relax it will be ok

Yeah my daughter hated it at first too. Just keep on putting her on her belly and she will get used to it! Even if its only for 30 seconds, do that a few times a day. Amelia is three months now and LOVES to be on her tummy, I think it makes her feel powerful, LOL!

My LO hated tummy time too.  I didn't stress about it, I'd put him on his tummy on the activity mat we have for as long as he could stand it, if he didn't last the recommended time I was ok with it.
