I'm having this problem too although Harry is quite a bit younger and can't roll! He just puts his face straight down and cries, he really doesn't like it x

I didn't really bother! I'm sure they develop just fine without it.

even though my little one is a lot younger i have a water mat-

maybe that would keep lo entertained long enough for her to have tummy time?

just an idea

Ethan does this too, rolls over instantly! I often cross one leg (say my right leg) and then put him on his front with his head to the right, so that he's still getting the practice at lifting his head and stregnthing his back. I also have a Whoozit water mat that he likes!
If they don't do tummy time it often means they won't crawl, but instead will go straight to sitting up and bum shuffling along instead! (no big deal)

tbh ive never really done a lot of tummy time with any of mine, ive given them a minute of 2 each day but if they didnt want to do it i just left them on there back, They have all crawled by 8/9 months. Dont worry she will find her own way to crawl, ive never taught them to crawl they have just done it themselves.

Evan used to just put his his head face-down on the carpet, and lie there. Now he can roll, he rolls back over instantly.
Basically, this amounts to pretty much no tummy time
I'll carry on giving him opportunities to be on his tummy, but purely because it is something different for him to do, not because I think he should!
I wouldn't worry, you're not alone! xx

I am having the same problem, my LO seems to hate tummy time. He gets frustrated and cries. How often to you give Harry tummy time? x
