My 3.5 month old hates tummy time! She doesn't tolerate it we'll at all. I try to prop her chest on a boppy & she just cries like its awful. I'm worried that she won't get upper arm strength donsge can eventually crawl. She hasn't rolled over yet either. A friend of mine said it's easier for babies to roll from their tummy to their back. Any ideas on how to keep tummy time from being such a disaster?

Thanks. I'll have to try.. She doesn't like to give it a chance. It's so hard for me to listen to her cry & get all worked up. She turns red & it takes a while to calm her down. She thinks tummy time is torture time!

Tummy time helps with flat head which my son got...actually he had torticollis but it's important because we have to lay them flat on their back...but I think it depends on the child..try doing it on your stomach with toys
