I'm looking for feedback from mums whose toddler(s) -
1. Didn't get much tummy time as babies (maybe 5 minutes a day, 10 minutes on a good day) because they hated it so much;
2. Were always put to sleep on their backs. (I put this second point in because some babies who hate tummy time are actually put to sleep on their stomachs, which is essentially tummy time).
- Did your baby crawl?
- What is your toddler like now?
I've heard some scary things, like babies who don't enjoy tummy time usually don't crawl, and then if they don't crawl their brains miss some vital connections which can result in language and speech difficulties, dyslexia when they are learning to read etc.
Any feedback would be appreciated!
