3 month old twins hate tummy time

I've been trying to get my babies to lay on their stomachs since they were very tiny but they hate it. They both scream when I put them on their stomachs in their baby gym or other surface. They're both really strong and can hold their heads up and push up, so I don't understand why they hate it so much.

Anybody else going through this?

Lots of babies hate tummy time. Some can only handle it for a few minutes or less others are okay with it. My son didn't mind it but a lot of my friends said their kiddos hated it. My son also started turning onto his side if we laid him on his back and then he started rolling over shortly after and then we couldn't keep him off of his belly. They will get used to it. You could try shorter times more often too,
