Transcription: 
The right approach to tummy time for babies is that we wait for the baby to turn onto their tummy and then they have tummy time. We don´t place babies on their tummy to practice tummy time before they can get into that position by themselves. We absolutely trust that when the baby is ready, when they have reached a certain point of maturation, that they will roll onto their tummy and that is the time when they are ready for that experience and will enjoy that experience. They don´t need us to put them into that position.
