Tummy Time Challenge

Lifestyle / Thursday, May 15th, 2014


The creator of the Labour Games presents to you, 
The Tummy Time Challenge.

The challenge: Accomplish the following activities and become the newest Tummy Time Champion. There are 3 categories. Mental, Physical and Verbal. Every baby grows at their own pace, and unless a medical professional tells you otherwise, your baby is perfect and neither advanced nor under performing for his or her age. No matter what Jack, Jim or John tells you.

Celebrate each category or task completed with a new outfit, toy, or something exciting that both you and baby can enjoy. An example, I plan on taking Gregory to the store and buying his first pair of ‘walking’ shoes.

Without further adieu, here are the challenges:

  • Following movement with eyes
