Cam HATES tummy time with a passion. If I even try it with her, she screams and it takes my normally happy baby over an hour to get back to normal. She doesn't even like laying on her tummy on my chest. Akadia was the same way and didn't start crawling until she was almost 10 months old. She learned to sit on her own first and then would lean forward to crawl. She was walking by the end of 10 months though so I guess it didn't stunt her development. I've pretty much given up on tummy time with Cam and just have her sitting in my lap and holding her own head up. Anyone else not doing it?

I try to do it throughout the day. It only lasts for a few minutes. He will either roll back to his back or start to cry. He does great with holding his head up and has great control, so I'm not too worried about it. But yeah, he hates it too.

Emma hates tummy time too. We don't do it much, but she will lay on her tummy on my chest so we do that a lot.
Thank you Babydoll213 for the precious siggy!

It takes Ellie 2.5 seconds to throw a major fit when I put her on her tummy!

Tori HATES tummy time too!! She is my first to hate it so much. She doesn't even like to lay on my chest either. Which seriously sucks because that is my favorite thing to do with babies this little is have them sleep on my chest. Nope she will wake up within 2-3mins if you lay her on her belly on a flat surface or on some ones chest. She is still a little wobbly with holding her head up. give her another week or two and she will have it down. No worries though!

I don't bother with it too much. Norah doesn't mind most of the time, but honestly I just keep forgetting. I wouldn't mind if she took things slow anyway. All of my other kids did everything early and it's not as cool as you might imagine. Chasing a running 9 month old is exhausting and scary.

Arianna has suddenly decided she hates tummy time. We were fine until about a week ago.

Sean started hating it a month or so ago. Until then he loved it!

He loves this mirror at Gymboree and so DH made one for him!

I don't do it to often, since she's always had such good head control... She's good for a few mintues when i do, and if she can't roll from her tummy to back then she gets very fustrated....

William is just now starting to be ok with it. I'd put him on his tummy every few days/once a week and he always hated it. He enjoys it somewhat now, but not for very long
