The Benefits of Tummy Time

Welcome to the world of parenting, where every moment is a milestone in your baby's development. Among these crucial moments, tummy time stands out as a powerhouse for infant growth. In this blog post, we'll delve into the importance of tummy time for infants aged 0-12 months and introduce two incredible products from The Happy Start – our High Contrast Board Book and our High Contrast Vision Cards, both designed to make tummy time engaging and beneficial.

  1. Unlocking the Benefits of Tummy Time:
    Tummy time is not just a chance for your baby to enjoy a new perspective; it's a key player in their physical and cognitive development. When babies spend time on their tummies, they strengthen their neck, shoulder, and arm muscles. This essential exercise also helps prevent flat spots on the back of their heads and lays the groundwork for important motor skills like crawling and rolling over.
  2. Visual Stimulation and Cognitive Growth:
    Enter The Happy Start's High Contrast Board Book – a delightful companion for tummy time adventures. This visually stimulating book features bold patterns and contrasting colors, capturing your baby's attention and encouraging them to explore the pages. As your little one engages with the high contrast images, their visual senses come alive, contributing to the development of cognitive skills.
  3. On-the-Go Visionary Fun: The Happy Start Vision Cards:
    We understand that parenting is an on-the-go adventure, and that's where The Happy Start Vision Cards come into play. Compact and designed for portability, these vision cards are perfect for tummy time sessions, whether at home or on the move. Featuring captivating images and patterns, these cards ensure that your baby gets their dose of visual stimulation wherever you are, fostering cognitive growth no matter the location.
  4. Creating Happy Tummy Time Routines:
    The key to successful tummy time is making it an enjoyable experience for your baby. The Happy Start's High Contrast Board Book and Vision Cards are tools that turn tummy time into a fun and interactive session. Set up a cozy tummy time space, lay out the vision cards, and watch as your baby engages with the high contrast images, making the most of this crucial developmental activity.
