I think it's more important to capture the development stage of Tummy Time! So I usually ask my clients to wait until their baby can comfortably hold his or her head up on their tummy.
If we do this session too early, it can look like a repeat of the newborn session, and I like to make sure there's a clear difference between what we capture at each session.
One other amazing change that happens at the second session is that Baby is ready to smile for us! Sometimes it can be tricky to coax smiles from a three month old (or thereabouts), but we keep trying until we get them.
I know that some babies really hate being on their tummies. (I raised three of them.) Even if they normally hate it, generally when we do this session we can get a few smiles before they decide they're done. They're so cute that it's totally worth it!
I totally enjoy getting to spend a few minutes with your little one. These sessions go much faster than newborn sessions (thankfully, whew!). It's so fun to see how much they have grown!
Next post: "sitting up" (around 6 months) session.
