Day 13 - Tummy Time

Today's Tip - Give your baby plenty of tummy time as soon as the cord stump falls off

Finally, the cord stump is gone, the cirumsion has healed...your baby is ready to start crawling! Maybe not yet, but daily tummy time is essential to developing your infant's motor skills. With SIDS looming large on everyone's mind, babies won't get any time on their stomach unless you supervise it. So when their on their bellies, watch them. Play with them. Make learning to hold their head up a fun time. Don't worry if they struggle or don't seem to get it. Try try again. And, after all, if they never try something, how will they learn?
