Tearless tummy time with a yoga mat


After three months of trying everything in the book to stop the tears at tummy time, I am happy to report that we have officially found a surface that is soft enough yet sticky enough to make the activity a success! Kayden never liked tummy time, he tolerated it sometimes when he was on Poppa’s chest but the majority of attempts ended in a fit of tears. That is, until, the yoga mat! The thickness of the mat makes it great for a house like ours that is all hard wood floors and it is sticky enough so that Kayden’s arms don’t just slide out when he attempts to push up! It’s also great because it is less expensive than the fancy activity mats or for those who practice yoga you can repurpose the mat for tummy time!
