Why Does Your Baby Need Tummy Time?                                                                                                         
Babies need to be active from birth. Tummy time is a great way to encourage your baby to get moving and start building muscle strength. By giving your baby a chance to develop their muscles, you will be helping to stimulate your baby’s development. Your baby is learning how to move their body outside of the womb. It is important for your baby to learn to use his or her neck, shoulder and arm muscles when in tummy time.
