Yeah it slipped our minds. Somehow we didn’t get the memo that tummy time is supposed to start after birth (Whut?) and only became more mindful of it ard 2mths+. Then at the PD yesterday for Nat’s 3 month vaccination, we got instructions to have at least 15min of tummy time everyday to strengthen his neck muscles.
Sorry Nat, guess we have to add this into your daily routine that already consists of ‘studying’ and ‘exercise’.
Seems quite stressful being a baby these days with developmental milestones and all. If we didn’t have the health booklet or the PD tell us, we’ll be none the wiser.
So what exactly does ‘studying’ and ‘exercise’ entail for Nat?
The former refers to his flashcard routines and reading activities while the latter refers to us trying to get him to practice grabbing things with his hands and sitting up. Then there’s also music therapy – where I let him listen to nursery rhymes in the day and Disney songs prior to a nap. However, I did this more often when he was between 1-2 months whereas now there’s so many activities to do during his limited 1hour+ waketime.
So to add on to his daily list of activities, we now have to explicitly incorporate more tummy time – on the bed and on Daddy’s tummy of course.
