I am having a lot of trouble with Noah and his tummy time. He absolutely hates it and screams after only 10 minutes or less. Is there any tricks I can do to make him like it more? He is 13 weeks old tomorrow.

I have a hard time with my ds too. He's 11wks, and hates tummy time after only a few minutes. Sometimes I sit in the recliner and recline all the way back with him on my chest and he looks up at my face and also I'll put him on the bed or the couch and then I'll sit with my face where he can see it easily if he lifts his head. I also bought a tummy time toy from fisher price that has two positions, it's either a tummy time toy, or you can position it to hang above the baby when he's lying on his back and ds loves it. It has 3 toys that hang down on it and it sings and also has a mirror which he loves. For the first time the other day i put him down in front of it and he lifted his head and chest far up off the ground which I couldn't believe, it was the first time!!

I had this problem with my dd, she would just scream if I put her on her tummy. After a couple of months of trying to make tummy time fun I gave up and stopped putting her on her tummy, then at 5 1/2 months old she started to roll over and since then she loves tummy time.

in the beginning less than 10 min is fine!! Keep doing it a little bit at a time, as he gets stronger he'll keep minding it less. You can put little bright toys in front of him, or get right down infront of him so he doesn't feel alone.
