Tummy Time

Everything I read says "tummy time" is very important for babies. It increases their strength and is the starting point for mobility. Babies learn to roll, push themselves up and eventually crawl from this position. Some books say try 30 minutes of tummy time a day. We don't get anywhere close to that, but we do try to get in a few sessions a day. She actually seems to like it, but doesn't last too long. After a few minutes she basically nose dives into the blanket or mat and starts to whine. That is when I usually roll her over and play with her by dangling toys over her.
