This picture captures what we pediatric therapists see all too often…the results of LACK of “tummy time”. Although devices such as car seat carriers, swings, and bouncy seats offer convenience, they are not the best option for babies to be in for any length of time. In order to develop appropriate strength and postural control, babies need supervised tummy time! If you’re interested in “tummy time” activities, or you feel your child needs some help with “tummy time”, stop into Hands On Physical Therapy and see our pediatric therapists Kerry or Karen.
