My daughter will be 7 months on the 30th and she has always hated tummy time! I have tried propping her up, using a playmat, laying in the floor with her, and putting her on my chest but she will only last about 3 minutes before she starts getting upset. I think it is more frustration than anything else because she is a very busy and nosey child. She can sit up on her own almost completely but still has a couple balance issues. I am just worried that she will not develop the upper arm strength that she needs to start crawling. I play in the floor with her a lot and she reaches for toys and plays with them well while sitting, but when they are a bit far away she will topple over because she can't hold herself up. Is anyone else experiencing this or have advice???
