In brief: 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.

In brief: 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!
