Did you know that by giving a baby the opportunity to spend time on their tummy, you are promoting their physical and mental development? TummyTime!™ is an evidence-based program designed by a licensed Occupational Therapist in Cincinnati Ohio. It uniquely addresses the needs of babies in the newborn through pre-crawling stages of life.
During this class, you and your baby will learn and practice the method as well as learn alternatives to floor tummy time. You will leave class with the skills and confidence to use the method effectively at home. Handouts for later reference will be provided.
Bring your questions! There will be time for personal Q&A with the instructor, who is certified in the TummyTime! Method as well as a Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
