The day after we brought Baby C home from the hospital we read through the discharge papers and it said to start tummy time as early as 2 weeks. I was hesitant because Baby C was so tiny but my husband said, “he’ll be fine” and put Baby C on his belly at 2 1/2 weeks. Baby C did great and he actually didn’t mind it but only for 5-10 minutes.
Fast forward to a couple months later and he would tolerate tummy time for about 10-15 minutes before he started to fuss and get frustrated.
We recently learned about the Tumzee from PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved). Have you heard of it? Well, we didn’t either until a few weeks ago! We were skeptical at first because it looked like another gimmicky product but we tried it and he loved being in it. It is a simple design but he was able to comfortably play on his tummy for at least 30 minutes. He loved being in it because for the first time he was able to grab his toys, pick them up and press the buttons on his Leap Frog ABC dinosaur. The way the Tumzee is angled allowed Baby C to play without getting frustrated.
Baby C is 5 months and we are still using it. The favorite thing about the Tumzee is that it was created by parents! I truly believe that parents know best and they make the best products for kids!
We had our friend’s 3 month old try it out and she liked it too!
I wish we learned about it sooner! Moms, dads, or need a baby shower gift? You should definitely check out the Tumzee! It’s a Parent Tested Parent Approved award winner!
