Aidan absolutely detests tummy time. He'll be ok for a few minutes but then he starts screaming and gets hysterical. He has rolled belly to back about a dozen times but it's been a good 2 weeks at least since he's done it. He just has zero interest in moving himself around. He hasn't rolled back to belly at all, he can't sit himself up but if we sit him up he's good for an hour or more sometimes, and he can push up on his arms but he can't get his knees under him. Should I be worried? His ped said to give him a lot more tummy time but I won't just sit by and let him scream. Any advice?

Porter is the same. He hates it. And can roll tummy to back, but won't always do it. He has rolled back to tummy twice, but both times it was on the bed with us, so I'm not totally counting that. He can sit if we sit him up, but falls over a lot. He doesn't try to army crawl or get his knees up or anything on his tummy. He doesn't get as much floor time as he should bc of our dogs. But I ordered some rubber mats to put on the floor in between our sectional so I can put a gate at the end and then he'll have a big play area. I'm hoping that will help.

Try short tummy times. We started with 30 seconds at every diaper change, comforting her while she did it. when she was happy with that, we went up to 1 minute. then 2. soon, she was doing 15 minutes HAPPILY. now she prefers to be on her tummy a lot of time. I liked this approach because it's easy to remember to try at every diaper change and 30 seconds wasn't too much and once you get that first 30 seconds down, it's easier to add time because you just do it as long as they are happy.

That is a great idea! Thank you. I've struggled with trying to keep him happy and it just leads to a lot of stress for me. I will try it this way. :-)

If you PM me I can also send you a video of what Isabel's tummy time therapy was like. It was a few weeks after she started but it's the beginning exercises. the 30 seconds at ever diaper change ... changed our life! haha. It's easy to remember and managable and it's baby steps...perfect for babies and mommies lol so much less stress I shared the video with a friend who's baby was behind and her baby is all caught up now. It's pretty easy once you get into a routine, and diaper changes are the best way to remember

I also did it every time I changed his diaper, just for 30 seconds or a minute, because I felt like he should have been able to hold himself up and he couldn't. It took only a few days of doing it for me to see a noticeable difference. That was a couple of months ago. I quit doing it every time once he was doing better at holding himself up. We still need to do more tummy time than we do, so I've gotta work on that.
