Tummy time, grasping and rolling

Home video

Head and neck control acquired through Tummy Time, grasping and rolling are all vital skills that your baby must be exposed to in order to begin developing their Fundamental Movement Skills.

  • Doing tummy time multiple times every day during awake time from soon after birth helps your baby build neck, head and upper body strength to crawl and pull to stand when they are older. Babies must achieve head control before they are able to work on sitting or walking.
  • Grasping is an important building block in the development of fine motor skills needed later in life.
  • Rolling develops as your baby's muscles are strengthened during Tummy Time - it may be the first time your baby is able to move independently.
