http://www.sunnybrook.ca // Tummy time exercises for your baby – instructions from Sunnybrook’s Women & Babies Program staff.

When you take your baby home from the hospital, you will have been given instructions to put your baby to sleep on his or her back. But because of this, we need to give the baby opportunities to develop shoulder and abdominal muscles, and to prevent flattening of the back or side of the baby’s head.

Every time you change your baby’s diaper, turn your baby gently over onto his or her tummy. Gently put pressure on his or her bum, and bring his or her elbows in front of the shoulders. This will encourage your baby to lift his or her head. Do this for one or two minutes to ensure good strength of your baby’s shoulder and abdominal muscles.

My baby hates tummy time. He always has. If you place him on his belly, he gets pissed and dips himself onto his back almost immediately. He will only do tummy time lying on my chest

***Babies don't need tummy time*** And it is actually not good for them (that is why they don't really like it) http://www.parentingworx.co.nz/fantastic-reading/emmi-piklers-8-guiding-principles/ Please read Key Principle No. 5

Soooo how did babies "strengthen their neck muscles" before Tummy Time was a thing? With the exception of children with some sort of physical disability, all babies eventually have enough strength to hold their own heads up. It just comes with growth. This is unnecessary and possibly harmful (they're basically doing a li'l workout).

Bubblegum Witch says:

My! That baby is so calm! Whenever my boy isn't dressed, he cries and he absolutely hates to be on his tummy! I still make him do some exercises but he whines throughout it.
