Never put your baby on their tummy on a soft surface like a bed as they will not be able to support themselves. A play mat or a quilt on the floor is ideal. Provide a lot of toys for them to encourage them to look and move around. A firm surface like the room floor is the best place to give your little one a tummy time to boost their muscle strength.

The surface allows enough support for them to move or crawl about on their tummy. A few of his favourite toys on the floor will work as the perfect distractions. Let him reach for them by keeping them at a certain distance. This will encourage him to try and crawl towards them, helping them develop a sense of balance on their tummy as well assessing their own muscle strength.
