Lack of “Tummy Time” Leads to Motor Delays

In a 2008 survey of 400 physical and occupational therapists, two-thirds responded that they had seen an increase in gross motor delays in infants over the previous 6 years.  Those that saw an increase in developmental delays said that “lack of tummy time” is the number one contributor the increase in cases.  Tummy time is crucial for your infant’s development and helps them develop the muscles they need to hold their head up, roll, sit, and crawl.
