Ahh dear. Where to start? You have probably heard of tummy time. I did, everyone does. Well, Miss Sissi hates it. I have been putting her on her stomack since she was born and she never enjoyed it. I tried everything – lying down with her, distracting her, placing toys around for her to reach, singing, you name it. She doesn’t like it. Or when she does, it never lasts long. She is a great little mover, but she does everything on her back, or on her sides. The only time she is happy on her tummy is when she is on our chests or on her balance ball.
Our pediatrician keeps insisting on how important tummy time is. Flat head seems to be the only thing coming out of his mouth. She doesn’t have a flat head. He does ! I left the hospital pretty upset. I know it is important for her to be on her tummy but I can’t force her. She usually puts herself back on her back. What to do?
Any suggestions appreciated !
