I've tried propping them up by putting a receiving blanket under their chests. We've tried getting down on the floor with them. We've tried facing them toward each other. We've tried enticing them with new and exciting toys. We've tried putting them on a blanket and pulling the blanket around the living room and dining room. We've tried laying them on top of us or on the couch so that they aren't on the floor. They still make it less than a minute or two and they are screaming. I'm getting concerned that if they don't do enough tummy time, they aren't going to learn how to crawl. Any thoughts on how I can help remedy their hate of tummy time???
Today we put them on the floor on the boppies with cool toys and both mommy and daddy with them. We made it nearly two minutes, but still, screaming! What else can we do??? And will they be lagging behind later if they refuse to do tummy time now? Mommas - did any of your babies refuse to do tummy time too???
Here's a picture of them @ 3 weeks old doing
And here's a picture of them now - pre-screaming =).
They look so happy in the second picture! I just think they should be happy for longer than 2 minutes during tummy time at their age. I mean, are they going to cry every time they go to crawl? And what do I do. . .just let them cry it out so they get the exposure to tummy time?
Happy early Easter everyone! We got the girls Easter baskets for their first Easter, even though we know that they won't remember it and wouldn't know the difference. With any luck I will find a few minutes to post tomorrow too =).
