Belly time

So belly time. Sigh. Am I right? Like has anyone ever had a kid whoΒ liked belly time? Stella really does do pretty great with it, except when she doesn’t. And then it’s full on baby-tears, saddest baby EVER. We always try to lay down next to her when she is doing belly time to interact and hopefully distract her from the fact that she’s doing belly time. So Daddy was on-call the other day for belly time and I captured this shot of him and Stells, both intently focused on their respective “toys.”

  1. Bribery….it works… I swear! That was about the only way I could get Raegan to do belly time…me, the hubs, or the dogs on the floor with her….and sometimes, she actually enjoyed her belly time…SOMETIMES πŸ™‚

  2. Ya, we RARELY did belly time b/c Stella HATED it, and she’s just fine. πŸ™‚
    VERY cute pic of your loves!

    • Just to chime in here – we didn’t do much of it either and Matthew rolled, sat up, and crawled WAY early. We did put him in the jumper early (2-3 months) because he wanted to be upright, and I think that took the place of belly time for us. Docs didn’t have a problem with it – so neither did we πŸ˜‰

      • Yep, we also did lots of bumbo time (also b/c she loved being upright). Same here – the peds doc was fine with it. πŸ™‚ Stella was never a roller, but she sat up as soon as possible b/c she SOOOO wanted to be upright, and there she stayed, happily playing, until 8mo when she started crawling everywhere.

  3. You are right πŸ˜‰

  4. Don’t like laying on my belly, so its my back

  5. Molly loves tummy time! It’s because of my flat head fear ha ha anyway she’s always on her tummy but hates her side. I’ve recently found she loves checking herself out in a mirror!! So maybe that might work πŸ‘Ά

  6. That’s a fantastic picture! You’re almost to the rolling and no more need for tummy time stage. πŸ™‚

  7. I heard tummy time can also be on your tummy… you lay on your back and she’s tummy-to-tummy with you πŸ™‚

  8. Ugg tummy time… don’t miss those days!! We rarely did it but did other exercises with Alidia to help her torticollis early on. She is fine now! πŸ™‚ Nice that one of you always lays down with her to keep her company. I am sure that helps. Cute photo!!

  9. Does this work? (Lying next to her) Because my babies HATE tummy time. Well, my girl hates it, my boy falls asleep almost immediately (I guess he loves tummy time, in that it feels awesome / relaxing).

  10. Chloe HATED tummy time! She would just bury her head into the ground and cry and cry. So needless to say we didn’t do much of it. Cute picture of those two together though.
