TummyTimeTM Method classes

The TummyTimeTM Method class teaches parents not only how to get their babies to enjoy TummyTimeTM, but also how to use it as a therapy.  With the focus on safe sleep and Back To Sleep, many parents struggle with having their babies spend time on their tummy.  Lack of time on their tummies leads to flat head syndrome, torticollis, delayed motor skill development, and poor tongue posture. TummyTimeTM helps babies who are recovering from frenectomy procedures, or who are dealing with reflux, colic or digestive problems.  Class size is limited to four pre-crawling infants and their caregivers.  Registration is required.

Fee: $30 per baby
