My big boy hate tummy time ! EVERYTIME I put him on his belly he screams. He has no interest in it. Sometimes I put him on his belly to sleep so I know he likes it then. But as far as play time he will just take his head and bury it and scream. I know that tummy time is key to holding their head up. Any suggestions ? He holds his head up pretty well already but he needs to do tummy time !!!

Still try to do little bits of tummy time several times a day, my DD hated tummy time until she got a little stronger to push herself up more to be able to see things. This is essential in their development so even if it is only 2 or so minutes to start with keep working with him and building up to more and more time.
