Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We started doing tummy time about a week after we brought DD home. We kind of ramp her up on the boppy. She is almost a month old and has excellent neck strength (see pic)
We did it pretty much from day one.
My daughter was holding her head up at the hospital and as far as physical abilities, she's a lot more advanced than the "typical baby". We did TT at about 10 days old. We were ok with putting her on her tummy because I was right there and she expressed interest.She loved it and tried to scoot across the mat even. Now at 2 months old, TT is one of her favorite things, next to boobie eatin. :D
When to start TT really depends on the child and when mom is comfortable. If you really aren't sure, ask the peditrician. Mine said it's typically a 3 week wait. :)
