C has always hated tummy time. Even though he’s going to be six months old this week, he still cries about 75% of the time we put him on his belly. Our latest gimmick is turning the tv on so that he can look at it when he lifts himself up far enough. Not something I’m proud of (I’m a strong believer in the recent studies recommending no screen time before age 2), but I just can’t figure out a way to get him to like it.
I’m not sure if babies are capable of deductive reasoning, but I’m convinced that C won’t roll from back to belly because he hates being on his stomach so much. We know he’s strong enough to do it.
Do you have any gimmicks for your tummy time haters? Did your child grow out of hating tummy time?
