Boppy Pillow for Nursing and Tummy Time

You can use these boppy pillows for nursing, but you can also use them for tummy time!  Just place the baby with their tummy over the pillow and their feet in the middle of the circle.  They can push up on their forearms, or just lay with their tummy or chest over the pillow and practice lifting and resting their head!
