Unlike generations prior, parents today need to be VERY INTENTIONAL about incorporating opportunities for tummy time. This includes starting tummy time early right after baby is born. Too much time spent on the back or in baby equipment and carriers interferes with innate newborn development. Believe it or not, there is a ton of strengthening and brain development that occurs while babies are on their tummies during the 0-3 month period that sets them up for success to meet future developmental milestones. Additionally, flattening of the head most typically occurs between 7-12 weeks of age and most parents say they didn't notice it happening. Even a small degree of head flattening can lead to neck tightness, interference with primitive reflexes and changes in normal movement patterns. Developmentally speaking, these changes in the body that are seen with flattening of the head are of greater consequence than the flat head itself. The 0-3 month class series helps parents: 1. Learn the links between motor development in infancy and learning and attention skills at school age. 2. Address concerns and misconceptions about starting tummy time early 3. Look for head turn preferences and neck tightness to help prevent flattening of the head. 4. Understand the pros and cons of baby equipment and how it may be interfering with normal development 5. Address tummy time challenges due to reflux or colic
