Does anyone know what this toy is for tummy time

I was at mums and babies this morning and they had like a toy that you put the baby on belly down and they have their tummy time on it. It was only small, it wasn't a roller as you actually put your baby lying on it instead of just shoulders and chest. It did spin when the baby kicked his legs but it stayed in one spot. That's as best I can describe it, I just thought it would be a good idea as my son is 4 weeks but hates being on tummy time on the floor. Thanks x

I have this but found that ds didn't take to it until much older. So if you get it don't despair if your son won't use it to start with

We had it. DS was a prolific projectile puker (allergies). It enabled him to spray vomit in an arc across the living room. He got quite literally half of the room.

I understand this isn't a problem for most people, and some babies really love it. I was a bit worried about the lack of head support though and worried his head would flop too far down and impede his breathing. I may be paranoid though.

Have you tried just putting him on your tummy / chest while you lean back (on the sofa or whatever)?

That's what i did with my DD as we were in hosp till 10 days old - no way was she going on the floor! confused

She got really good head control really fast because she was trying to look at my face, so using the muscles lots.

Once she could hold herself up she was fine with being on the floor because she didn't have a face full of carpet, iyswim grin

A friend sits with her knees up and lies her little boy on her thighs with his head at her knees so he can see over them - he seems to like that.

He's always lying on my chest when I'm lying down, it's the only way he gets too sleep and only if I'm laying flat. He has got really good strength in his neck, he's too strong for his own good sometimes haha. I was just worried about tummy time because my hv said he would get flat head, but thinking about it he does sleep on me on his belly more than his back. Thank you everyone x
