Unlocking the Benefits of Tummy Time

As a parent, you want the best for your baby. You want to see them grow, develop, and reach their full potential. That's why it's important to prioritize activities that promote their physical and cognitive development. One such activity is tummy time, and there's no better way to enhance this experience than with the Tumzee.

What is tummy time and why is it important?

Tummy time refers to the practice of placing your baby on their stomach while they are awake and supervised. This simple activity has a multitude of benefits for your little one. It helps to strengthen their neck, back, and shoulder muscles, which are crucial for achieving important developmental milestones like crawling, sitting, and walking. Tummy time also helps to prevent the development of flat spots on the back of your baby's head, which can occur if they spend too much time on their back.
