Tummy Time is simply the time that babies spend lying and playing on their tummies and off their backs while they are awake.

  1. Lying prone (tummy down) on a blanket on the floor
  2. Lying prone on mommy or daddy’s tummy or chest while mommy or daddy are reclining
  3. Lying prone on a nursing pillow or “Boppy”
  4. Lying prone on mommy or daddy’s forearm as baby is carried
  5. Lying prone on an exercise ball
