Tummy Time is one of baby’s first playtimes and the most important!
Not all babies enjoy tummy time, but they really need some time on that tiny tummy to develop those much needed neck and spine muscles.
Tummy Time is an activity usually done during the day when your baby is awake and on their stomach. It is a crucial exercise for baby’s motor, visual, and sensory development.
Try to make tummy time fun and interesting for baby by adding some great sensory items.
One of our favourite is to create a sensory path, for this activity.
Fill some ziplock bags with fun colourful sensory items (tin foil, coloured water, glitter, gel the list is endless) and secure to the floor with tape. This activity promotes and encourages movement across the floor, as baby explores each exciting bag.
If baby isn’t moving around yet, a great tummy time activity is having the same idea as the ziplock bags but pop the sensory items in bottles, place the bottles in baby’s eye-line and watch as they explore all the different exciting visual things.
