Tummy time signifies an exciting time in your infant’s life! It helps to stretch out an infant’s hips and shoulders, improves head control, and helps activate back muscles to get the child ready to sit. Tummy time is also important because it gives your child time without weight and pressure on their developing skull. Being on their stomach allows for learning coordination of movement between the arms and legs, too, to help with getting ready to crawl, climb, and walk!
