Adler and Austen Share Some Tummy Time

Apparently you are supposed to put your baby on his tummy for a period of time each day to help them strengthen their necks. That's because they are supposed to sleep on their backs and this doesn't allow them any opportunity to exercise those neck muscles that they need to hold their heads up.

You'll see Austen is already a pro - thanks to Adler. I mean who wouldn't be interested in lifting up their head so they could stare at an 80 lb. dog who is looking right at you!


  • Hi,

    I work for Pathways Awareness Foundation, an organization that recently got together a group of surgeons, physical therapists, pediatricians and nurses who are experts on early motor development to come up with a set of tummy time standards. The recommendations deal with how much tummy time babies need, how to incorporate it into your baby's day, and what exactly to do with a newborn vs. a 3-week-old. With your blog entry on tummy time, I thought you might be interested in this article. I hope the link is helpful!
