Infant Stimulation Activity 86: Tummy Time Series - 2 months

Don’t be concerned if your 2-month old is not yet up to 15 minutes of tummy time per session. Any time spent in a position where she has to try and hold up her own head is strengthening her upper body, helping her gain head control, and strengthening the muscles in her arms and neck.

Encourage baby to look up by getting down. Yes, you! Get down on the floor with your baby face-to-face. Try to get her to meet you eye-to-eye even if for a moment or two. Sing a song or call her name and make tummy time an interactive experience.

Or get some siblings in on the action!
