How often?


I try to let Raini play on the playmat or in the playpen atleast 10 mins a day but she absolutely hates it. She'd rather be in the swing or the johnny jump up or in my arms. She likes to sit up.

Yes, Addy finally likes it...she plays for about 10-15 minutes at a time, I try a couple of times a day when I am home. Sometimes, I put her on her mat to play with the hanging toys and she immediately flips to her belly...sometimes it makes her mad

She now sleeps on her belly too!

Arie used to like it, but when she turned 6 weeks old she started rolling over so tummy time is non-existent now I still put her on her tummy several times a day, but she automatically flips over. I am putting her in her swing more now.

Wow Raini will not roll over, she isn't the least bit interested, just kicks her feet then starts screaming after about 5 mins.

Tistan gets it whenever his active time is not after a meal. He loves being on his tummy, but not for too long. It helps to put something that makes lights and sounds in front of them or I simply get down and talk to him myself. Use a pillow under baby's chest to get used them to the tummy time and to work on her heck muscles.

McKinley absolutely hates Tummy Time!!
I've tried everything from laying on floor with her, to putting toys in front of her, trying to get her distracted and it all fails.. she hates it with a passion. She won't roll over because she is too busy screaming lol.

Ethan is not a big fan of tummy time. I can get him to lay down long enough to lift his head and then he lays down and starts screaming. If I don't turn him over fast enough he kicks until he rolls over. Once he is on his back he is fine.

Spencer enjoys tummy time as long ad he is not hungry or tired. He doesn't stay on his tummy too long before he rolls over. When he rolls over I will turn him back over and he smiles really big and laughs then turns over again, he thinks its a game, and it was cute at first jow its just tiring lol. He has turned from back to tummy several times, he is just lazy about it lol.

yep! during every "play" session. he does quite a bit per day and loves it... my daughter though at first used to hate it and i forced it although she'd last only 2min before crying i'd try to do some 2min MANY times during the day. Thankfully this one is much easier in that sense. He does get annoyed after awhile...

Yep, he likes it... he mostly naps on his tummy so it doesn´t really bother him.
But not like I can leave him like that forever... he gets annoyed after a while like every other baby

I never heard of 'tummy time' until we talked about it here a few months ago! LOL! (I asked my almost 18 year old if he feels slighted and he looked at me quizzically!)

Josie sleeps on her belly at night -other than that she is held or sits in her papasan chair here and there.

Adler really likes laying on his tummy during the day. He has started rolling around a bit when he gets time on the floor while we play with big sister. He is really content on his belly which surprises me, his sister only wanted to be on her back never her stomach.
