For most of us the festivities involve being out and about, travelling between gatherings and lots of fun, however this can limit the time your baby has for free play and floor based tummy time.

So how do you make sure your baby gets enough tummy time this festive season between all your commitments?

How screen time effects development

As our world becomes more digital and connected online, our little ones daily habits will change. The exercise and amount of outdoor play we all enjoyed when we were young, isn't as common for todays children. Research published this year (2019) is uncovering the detrimental effects of high screen time, with one study showing higher screen time between the ages of 2 and 3 years of age was associated with delays in meeting developmental milestones at 3 and 5 years of age1.
