TTC #2 since 7/2013 - My Chart
randomnames:I was told 3-5 times a day for at least 3 minutes or longer if they tolerate it
wiggles527:I've read 5-10 min at a time. Ethan loves tummy time most of the time so I let him go longer occasionally
This, and I have also heard 30-60 minutes of awake tummy time a day. I wouldn't worry if your baby is rolling over, just put him or her on tummy to start out. Also, our pediatrician said that our baby could nap on his tummy during the daytime as long as we are right there with him and keeping an eye on him (and of course he is on a firm, flat, smooth surface with no blanket or anything). He usually takes a couple naps on his tummy on a mat on our hardwood floor and seems to like it. We just don't leave the room when he's doing it, and he lies on his cheek facing us so we can watch him.
