Infant Stimulation Activity 85: Tummy Time Series - airplane

The purpose of tummy time is to encourage your baby’s motor development which proceeds from the head down. So any time he has to hold up his own head he is progressing towards greater motor development. A great variation to lying baby on the floor for tummy time is to hold him up like an airplane.

Hold your baby tummy-side down and lift him up or even better gently “fly” him around the room. You may naturally find yourself making propeller sounds or singing a silly song about flying. What fun!
