Experts recommend about 30 minutes of Tummy Time each day for infants. Tummy Time encourages fine and gross motor skills. Tummy Time encourages babies to push up on their hands and arms which helps to develop strong shoulders, arms and hand muscles required for grasping and reaching.
The unique design of Tumzee® enables babies to be propped up on their stomachs, which helps reduce the frustration babies incur during the Tummy Time learning experience. It has a “T” support and contoured walls which will keep them from sliding down and will keep them in place. Because Tumzee® is on an incline they are able to see the surrounding environment and play with toys developing neck, back and arm muscles as well fine motor skills. Tumzee® has the softness required for infants to be comfortable laying on it but the stiffness necessary to support their weight. Tumzee® is now used and recommended by doctors, chiropractors and therapists.
