The best time to start belly time when the cord has fallen off and the baby can support his/her own head you do not want to put the baby on there belly when they can't support there head cause they can suffocate themselves.


Start tummy time after the umbilical cord has fallen off and healed.

As long as your baby is comfortable, though, you can safely let her play on her stomach right away.
