Often: The more "tummy time" your baby gets, the rounder her head will be and the easier it will be for her to learn to roll, sit and crawl.
Tummy time - as much as possible!

Often as can: As often as you can while awake. Start with 2-3 minutes aftwr each diaper change to remind yourself. Get down with baby to look at you and/or toys. Increase time and frequency as baby gets stronger.
