My 3 month old hates tummy time I can get her to use her boppy on the couch for about ten minutes tops...I also carry her on my shoulder and she holds her head up and looks around.also lay her on her belly on my chest while I lay flat....but I feel like it nits really helping her arm strength? What else can I do? She screams when I put her on the floor have tried laying in front of her activity pads and a blow up water turtle with fish in it from babies r us made for tummy time she will not tolerate it on the floor...she will do it in her changing table but only for two minutes and screams...any tips or advice?

No baby I have ever known including my own, likes tummy time. Sounds like you are doing everything I would suggest doing. Tummy time is definately for arm and neck stregth but the neck is the most important. If the boppy on the couch works best, do that with of course supervising her. Also laying on the floor with her on your chest is doing more than you realize for strength. Keep up the good work momma, my kids HATED it!
