    Evening all,

    So tummy time has become, shall we say, difficult...

    LO loved it as a newborn, but now it usually goes a minute or 3 of her lifting her head then she just gets angry and literally growls and then cries.

    So tonight I have rolled up a towel and put it under the top of her chest. Just to raise her head and upper body up a bit. She is keeping her head up and has lasted about 7 or 8 minutes, which is a massive improvement.

    So does this count as tummy time? Will it give all the benefits normal tummy time does?

    :flower:

    Of course! They actually recommend this for babies that dont like it :) I would every once in awhile like every week remove the towel and see how she does

    Yes it counts! I'm sure I've heard that you can buy tummy time supports (or possibly playmats with them built in).
