Simon hated tummy time. He would just howl. When I went in to have him weighed last Tuesday the health visitor said I really need to start doing it – even if he doesn’t like it. So last weekend I started trying to put him on his tummy on his change mat for a few minutes each day and he loved looking at the baby in the mirror.
This morning I saw him lift up on one arm, so for fun I took him downstairs and laid him down on his tummy on a blanket since there wasn’t room on his change mat. It took about 30 seconds for him to roll over.
So, after worrying that a few minutes of tummy time every other day wasn’t going to cut it he rolled over after maybe a total of one hour of tummy time in his life. Hmmm mama, maybe you should’t worry so much…
(I’ll post a video when we catch him doing it again.)
