    My first was like that so we hardly ever did it. He was absolutely fine, no ill effects from not doing it so I wouldn't stress yourself out about it hun x

    My little man hates it so much that he actually rolls himself over!! I read that putting him in a bouncy chair is an alternative its just so they have different positions to build up their muscles!!

    My first wouldn't do it at all luck if he did for 5 mins!! it didn't harm him not doing it have u tried laying him on u when ur lying down! I used to panic that he wouldn't do it but he rolled himself onto his front when was 7-8 months and didn't mind it so much then xx

    Kynon seems to like it! We were told at baby sensory to only do a minute per month old three times a day so that's not a lot. You could try putting him on your bed then getting down level with him or on top of your birthing ball to make it more fun!

    Tucker also hated tummy time!!!! He would get really angry and squeal the house down but once he could roll over that's all he did until he could crawl and as he didn't do that til 10 months he rolled everywhere lol I'm wondering how james will be with it lol xx

    I'm not worried, Jasper spends so much time on my chest with me leaning back against the soft that it is sort of upright tummy time. He pushes himself up to look around and holds his head up, so i know he's working the muscles that way

    i know that savannah would no way have spent half an hour on her tummy when she was your lo's age... She doesn't even least half an hour now!

    Somebody said try it on the bed... Thats a good idea because it will have the same effect just wont be so much pressure on the tummy!

    My LO hates it if I put her on her tummy on the floor but I have bought her a little la maze toy that is a ladybird that you lay them on and has an activity mat underneath and they can spin themselves round....she loves that as she is just figuring out that she can push herself a little bit with her feet....she still wouldnt do half hour tho
