Re: My baby HATES tummy time!

DD hated tummy time. I didn't worry about it too much until she started getting a flat spot.

Most of her tummy time ended up being on mom because that was happier for her.

I set a timer and I pretty much made her deal with it for about 5 minutes. I'd be there, playing with her, trying to distract her, etc. After 5 minutes, I'd relent and we'd do something else.

but I didn't start that until like... 4 or 5 months.

didn't end up being a problem in the end, she rolled, crawled, walked, ran just fine. Just didn't like tummy time.

ETA: I also wore her a lot, but she liked to be on the floor playing, and that meant she liked to be on her back.
