The Power Of Tummy Time

Posted by Dr Jacey Pryjma on 19-Sep-2017 14:00:00

Watching your babe achieve new skills makes your heart go a flutter! You’re watching in awe as this little human, who you have brought in to the world, learns, develops and grows right before your eyes. Working on tummy time helps him to one day move on his own. He starts to lift his head and one day take those amazing first steps will be some of the most proud moments you have as a parent. Tummy time is such an important first step into the future.

Humble Beginnings 

Complex skills like walking start from humble beginnings. Just as it takes time for you to learn new skills, there is an ordered progression of development that happened for babies to move forward. Your baby builds new skills from the smaller milestones achieved before. Tummy time is one of the key early skills to support the progression forward. When a baby is brand new neck and head stability is non-existent. From feedback through the nervous system, his little brain starts to make new connections helping build communication and control of his body. It’s also the time where your baby starts to learn about gravity and the effort it takes to lift his (proportionally big and heavy!) head.

The power of tummy time is far reaching. Not only does tummy time help build head, neck and upper body strength it drives feedback to the brain helping to further grow those connections within the brain and support him to take those next steps towards spinal stability and new exciting milestones.
