When babies are born they are in a flexed position and tummy time helps them to work on their extensor muscle strength and stretch out the front of their body. That doesn’t mean that their abs are strong though. It’s just as important for them to develop abdominal strength. Not only is it important for their core but it also helps with attaining their milestones. As they develop their abdominal strength they are able to participate in hand and foot play. Hand and foot play can help with rolling and body awareness and stretching out their hamstrings!
