Re: My baby HATES tummy time!
I did tummy time for zero of my three kids. I reasoned that no baby needs "special exercises" for little legs to work ... it just happens ... so probably no baby needs special exercises for anything.
Two of my babes crawled and walked early, the other was within normal limits.
Now my 7 year old is a black belt in Taekwondo, my 5 year old does cartwheels and other tricks in gymnastics, and my 2 year old is a climbing wizard.
Point being, there were no short term or long term effects of skipping it. I decided now, in retrospect, that tummy time was just another excuse to try and sell us blankets with pillow attachments and mirrors. It's quite appalling really.
I work out of the home 40 hours per week and we have a ton of evening and weekend activities; so if you PM me and I don't respond right away please just be patient! Thank you! Cathy
