Mine is the same. But I helped raise 6 other children and something that I learned is that babies are going to go at their pace. Things like this don’t mean that they’re delayed. It just means they don’t feel like doing it yet🤷🏼♀️ sometimes they’re just, for lack of a better word, “lazier”. Doesn’t have anything at all to do with their smarts. Look at Albert Einstein. He didn’t start talking until he was 4 and he was a genius. Babies are going to go at their own pace whether we like it or not. You’re doing a good job in encouraging him the best you can!
Two minutes feels like a lot to me! Have you tried yummy time on your chest while you’re laying in bed? That counts!
Mine does this too, but the point of it is to grow her muscles :) just a few mins every day like working out. 💕 maybe try a boppy pillow too! They can help :) and by boppy I mean nursing pillow
I also cry when I have to work out 😂 try toys and encouragement. Tummy time can be done on your chest laying down or even up in the air (which is a good strength exercise for mom too). Get creative with it.
It’s totally fine to still have this issue. My son does. If I do normal tummy time with him, he will put his face in the ground and not try to move it at all. I do it with him on my chest a lot. His pediatrician said even at 4 months it can be fine.
My three month old hates tummy time too. She will tolerate it for a while if I use a Boppy and I also got that crawling crab toy from Amazon that’s been all over TikTok - she’s super interested in that! But yeah she doesn’t have great head control yet either.
My little girl hates tummy time. (She’ll be 4 months on the 5th) So I have her do it on my chest. That way she can see me. Don’t be hard on yourself mama. Babies learn at their own rate. You are doing an amazing job. 🏼
Mine is struggling on tummy time too. She is great on chest on her tummy and she has decent stability as well while being held or sitting up. I’m not sure. She was also premature by about a month so I was told by her pediatrician that she may be slightly delayed. Don’t be discouraged. All babies progress at their own timing. Ask her pediatrician and see if they have any tips or advice. My guess though is that she will be just fine. Keep up the great work mama!
Same issue, mine daughter hates tummy time. I started laying with her and purchased a soft flip book with black and white pictures and a mirror. It seems have grabbed her attention. She was born early, pediatrician said it’s okay for her to be slightly delayed.
