How is tummy time going? Do you schedule it in everyday or do you not worry about it too much? Does your baby like it or hate it?

We try to do it everyday after bathtime when she's getting rubbed down with lotion. She seems to like it better then than to just lay in the floor with toys for tummy time (Can't imagine why!). I haven't been too worried or obsessed about it this time though like I did with Ryan. She has really good control of her head & is super strong, so I think we're ok.

Jonah rolls onto his tummy by himself now!! He just can't seem to figure out how to get back onto his back though. I don't place him on his belly too much now that he's rolling there himself. Every time I look over at him he's scooting around on his belly...it's really cute! I have a video..I'll try to figure out how to post it from my iPad...if I even can.

We do tummy time every day multiple times a day. Sometimes he likes it and sometimes he hates it.

I put Eve on her tummy when I think of it and it's been awhile since she last ate. She likes it now that she can lift her chest off the ground and hold her head up well.

Everyday, multiple times. He really loves it. But he loves to look around at us, then gets bored and rolls on his back. Its sooo funny!

I do it but don't worry about it too much if I don't do it everyday. He hates it and screams the whole time!

I do it if I think of it. I'm usually so busy I forget. She seems to like it, she laid on the boppy for a good 15 minutes today.

I do it every day. He used to love it but lately he'll either get upset or just lay there and suck his hand! He has great head control and I just make sure we do a lot with him sitting and standing to work those muscles in addition to whatever time he's on his tummy.

Emmy hate it. She typically refuses to move and works herself into a tizzy! Lol. So I don't stress it; I carry her in a way that she looks around and uses her upper body and she lays on my chest a good bit. I envy those of you whose babies enjoy it!!

Luyando loves it. My dd1 hated it so its nice to have a baby that likes it. We do it several times a day too; her tummy time mat is her favorite chill out place.

We do it at least once a day. Hunter hates it with a passion, but I don't think he has great head control for a four month old. I think it should be much better, so we continue to work at it.

We do it when I think of it, but whenever I put him on his tummy he picks up his head for a few minutes and then just rolls on his back, lol. He has really good head control though so I'm not worried.

Jett tolerates it when we do it. He hangs for a few min with out any complaining but gets bored then fussy. He doesn't seem to enjoy it either though. He's really strong. He loves when you pull his arms up into sitting position. He smiles and smiles when we play that game. He also loves to stand up for long periods of time. He never flops his head or neck, he just stands there looking side to side, staring at the dogs playing etc. since he's seems to be so strong we don't stress tummy time. So I don't when I remember, and his daycare lady does it too.

This is probably bad mommy of me, but Sophie LOVES the television so I put her on her tummy on the chaise lounge and she will push up to watch! Otherwise she will fight with it and then eat her hand as she lays there.
