Make sure your baby has tummy time every day.
Awake tummy time should be supervised by an awake adult. This helps with baby's motor development and prevents flat head syndrome. See Back to Sleep, Tummy to Play for more information and ways to play with the baby during tummy time.
Note: All of the above recommendations, unless mentioned otherwise, are for babies up to 1 year of age. Talk with your pediatrician if you have questions about any of the recommendations listed.
