He should have been doing tummy time from a couple of weeks of age!

He won't hit his head on the floor, he will be strengthening his neck and back muscles. You are holding him back by not doing it!!!!

Just make sure he is on a soft blanket. It's important for him to get his neck muscles. At 4 months you are going to be ok with him. Just don't put him on a hard surface.

You can buy one of those tummy time playmats with and lay a blanket underneath.

Do you really think doctors would recommend it if that could happen? I think you are being a bit paranoid, your baby will be fine. He NEEDS tummy time in order to strengthen his neck and other muscles.
