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!
Perfect for encouraging infants to lift their head up during tummy time to strengthen their head and neck muscles! Great for social play, language, and cognition too!
These mats are great for 0-6 months age range. You can use them for gross motor, fine motor, vision, cognitive, and language skills.
This is Episode 11 of my podcast, but the first Episode under the new name Milestones. The previous name of this podcast was The Special Needs Podcast. The same type of material will be presented here for people interested in Child Development, topics surrounding Children with Special Needs, Sensory Processing Issues, Feeding Skills, and any other range of topics related to Child Development and Developmental Milestones.
In this Episode I discuss “tummy time” and why it is important for all babies to have tummy time regularly!

This may can be helpful in getting your baby more interested in tummy time! It has bold colors with black and white pattern and high contrast that babies can see well. The mat also comes with a pillow that can be placed under the baby’s chest to help make tummy time a little easier. It comes with a mirror and 2 toys to help keep their interest longer and make it fun for them!
