Tummy time fail

Does anyone else have problems with tummy time with their little one? Our baby HATES it and cries the whole time. She’s 3.5 months old but was 4 weeks early. I feel like she should be able to at least hold herself up with her arms by now but she doesn’t even want to try. She just buries her head in the mat and screams. Any tips??

Maybe try putting something she's interested in in front of her/elevated a little bit?

My son never liked tummy time when he was tiny. But I spoke to the health visitor about it one time and she said tummy time on your actual tummy still counts! My baby built his strength in his arms and everything by lying on my tummy and when he got a bit bigger and more wriggly he then LOVED being in the mat!

My almost 5 month old hates it he just wants to be sat up stood up with me holding him. I dont really do it anymore its not worth him getting upset over it. I feel like its my fault tho because I wasn't consistent with it x

Yeah definitely. I always compare my little one to other babies and we shouldn't because they are all different x

We haven’t done it as much as we should either. But either way I guess we shouldn’t worry about it because they will eventually learn to crawl one way or another!

My daughter is the same. She HATES tummy time. She is also 3 months 2 weeks and she cannot hold up her head for a whole minute. She cries hysterically after about 30 seconds and then plops her head back down. There are days I don’t do tummy time on the floor because it is very difficult to watch her struggle like that.
