My Baby HATES Tummy Time

I put her down every day on her play mat and she tolerates it for approximately a minute before she starts screaming her head off. Sometimes I put her on the boppy and she doesn't like that either. She is 8 weeks.



Any suggestions?

My daughter is much the same. But I find she enjoys tummy time more if I put her infront of our mirrored wardrobe. She enjoys looking at her own reflection. Also adding a few musical toys might help to keep her occupied.

Try putting some fun toys in front of them to keep them entertained. I did it every day until my son started to enjoy tummy time. He is 5 months and crawling like crazy.

I would say don't put them on tummy if they don't like it, my first son hated being placed on his tummy until he learned to roll over by himself then he liked it just fine. Number 2 seems to like being on his tummy a lot more so they are all different.

I don't have any suggestions, but I'd be interested to see what you get. My 12 week old son hates it too.
