I never did tummy time at all. Neither child liked it & they weren't in swings or bouncers nearly at all. I wore them in suitable, supportive carriers & they hit all their milestones just fine. I think it's fine it it works for a given family, but I don't think our ancestors were laying babies face down on dirt floors so I have a hard time believing it's the "only" or "best" way to help them develop good muscle tone & cognitive skills. I don't think there is anything wrong with it - I also don't think you have to do it either. And babies with flat spots likely just need more holding, not more time on the floor.
