Babywearing and tummy time

I did a lot of reading when I was pregnant and during those first few months of my daughter’s life. About different parenting styles, how to support my child’s development, and about tummy time. I’m guessing that most of you have heard that tummy time is very much encouraged for babies.

But here is the thing: most babies under 4 months don’t actually like to be on their tummies. And who can blame them? It is hard work for their muscles to hold their head up.

So, why is there this recommendation for tummy time? And could babywearing be an alternative?

Let’s dive in and find answers to those questions!
