program developed by Michelle Emanuel to address the needs of babies in the newborn to precrawling stage of life. The program
is specific to attuning to baby's calm and relaxed state as well as bonding with parent during tummy time experiences.
Because tummy time is the foundation of all sensorimotor skills throughout life!
Your baby is learning how to move their body outside of the womb. It is important for your baby to learn to
use his or her neck, shoulder and arm muscles when in tummy time. Researchers have found consistent tummy time to be
associated with improved motor development. This means that four month old babies who spent at least 30 waking minutes
on their tummies scored higher on developmental tasks when compared to babies who did not spend time in tummy time.
