Anyone else have a 10 week old with a wobbly head?

DS will be 10 weeks on Sunday and he doesn't have very good head control at all.  He absolutely hates tummy time so we might get like 10 minutes a day.  I try to lay him on my chest but he gets fussy like that too.  I've tried different types of stimulants to keep him interested but that doesn't work at all.  He might keep his head up for 10 seconds max but usually, he's extremely wobbly.  I'm so so so paranoid that I'm screwing up my little one lol Anyone else have the same problems?  What do you ladies suggest to help keep him interested?

TIA!

    I hold DS on my lap with him in a sitting position facing me and talk to him.  If he's in a good mood he likes to smile and coo back at me.  DS hates tummy time also so I try to do this as well so he can gain more head control.

    My LO has reflux and spits up a lot all throughout the day, so I have a hard time figuring out when to do tummy time because I know he'll spit up throughout it.  So having him sit up on your lap and talk with him is a great suggestion!

    Thanks :)

    I do but she was born 5 1/2 weeks early.  For us my daughter gets the most practice holding her head up when I hold her over my shoulder and walk around.  She likes to look aoround at things then, especially if I stand where she can look in the mirror. She doesn't really like tummy time in her crib either

    DS LOVES to do this. I carry him around on my hip a lot during the day. I hold him in an awkward way that he won't fall over. We actually forget to do tummy time now, but I figured this is a great way to get some head/neck control.

    I feel like my 11 week old is the same way. She is SO lazy during tummy time - she just lays her head down and won't lift it. DD1 was 6 weeks early and by 6 weeks at tummy time would pop her head up and hold it up fairly good with her arms. She also rolled pretty early. But this full term baby is making me nervous - she just wants nothing to do with it. I've been doing the lap thing too to MAKE her hold it up. I also have one of those Boppy tummy time pads which came with a small boppy and I prop her up on that to make her "push" herself up. I feel like I'm screwing her up too or not working with her as much as DD1.

    Do you have a boppy?  Use the boppy for tummy time - kinda prop LO up over the rounded end on his elbows.  Otherwise, a pillow can do the trick too.  That way it kinda helps lift their head enough that they will only have to lift it a little bit to see up - small steps.
