Summary: This activity introduces your baby to tummy-time. In addition to being a lot of fun, this activity helps strengthen their neck and upper body and increases their understanding of balance.

  • Talk or sing to your baby as you gently rock them from side to side.

Note: Never place your baby to sleep on their tummy, always on their back.
