Tummy Time Classes

Learn Creative Ways to Engage Your Baby in Tummy Time Activities 

Tummy Time classes are ideal for babies, 3 to 18 weeks old, that struggle with latching or breastfeeding, belly play, sleep, reflux and bloating, constipation, posture development, position-related skull deformities, flat head syndrome (Plagiocephaly), and asymmetries or gestational constrictions, such as torticollis.

Tummy time, the amount of time your baby spends on their belly while awake and supervised, is the foundation of sensory-motor skills development in infants.

Spending time on their belly helps your infant:

• Maximize their nervous system function
• Elicit more adaptive and successful regulation responses
• Decipher sensory input correctly
• Evoke non-compensatory functional movement
• Increase bond and connection with the whole family

According to a report published in the peer-reviewed journal Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, pediatric societies “strongly encourage ‘a certain amount of tummy time’ … to counteract the effects of sleep position on awake positioning practices and subsequent development.”

Tummy time and an active start are vital for your baby’s optimal growth and development.

Belly play helps babies to strengthen the muscles in their core, upper body, and hands. It also incorporates exercises that positively impact speech, vision, balance, and coordination as well as other challenges your baby will encounter in their new gravity-ruled environment.

Furthermore, tummy time promotes a stronger connection with caregivers and helps with feeding and digestion issues, such as gas and acid reflux. It also reduces flat spots on a baby’s head, which can develop from sleeping and playing on their back.

As a result, tummy time can have a significant effect on your baby’s later development.

“I couldn’t believe how long my son stayed in tummy time each session! It was the longest he’d ever held the position! … I really enjoyed Yrma’s methods & it helped me to tend to my son’s needs better while encouraging him to do tummy time.”
