Tummy time

Short amounts of time lying on their tummies is good for babies' physical development. It lets them learn how to move their head, limbs and neck.

It can also be a good time to talk to them, so they hear plenty of words. If you talk to them and praise them throughout, it can help soothe them through what can be a stressful time for your baby.

Remember - babies should only ever be placed on their tummies when they're awake and you're in the room with them.
