Tummy Time. Two words which inspire either gleeful giggles or screams of protest from babies. Why is it that babies are never neutral on the subject? They seem to love it or hate it. Ryder was in the latter camp; putting him on his tummy to play was akin to beating him with a stale breadstick; he wanted nothing to do with it and stared at us with knowing accusation in his eyes. Quite simply, it was torture.
I wish I had come across this fabulous product back then –
“TUMZEE has been designed for babies, from birth to crawling age. The unique design enables babies to be propped up on their stomachs on an incline, which helps reduce the frustration babies incur during this learning experience. Once babies are able to roll over they do not spend any time on their tummies anymore and TUMZEE allows them to spend time on their stomach without rolling over or getting out of it. It also has a “T” support which will keep them from sliding down. Since they are propped up they are able to see the surrounding environment and play with toys developing neck and back muscles as well.”
Check out the features illustrated:
TUMZEE is made of 100% non-toxic EVA foam. It has the softness required for infants to be comfortable laying on it but the stiffness necessary to support their weight. I can’t get over how ingenious this product is! Imagine, keeping babies comfortable and secure as they enjoy time on their tummies. This item should be on EVERY baby registry list – new parents will thank you.
You can also use TUMZEE with all those fancy tummy time mats – just line it up on top of the play area, and let your child go nuts! A bonus; you won’t have to continually reposition your baby as he/she learns to roll and get out of tummy position. TUMZEE was proudly designed in Canada by parents who were equally frustrated by tummy time. To this, we say THANK YOU!!! It’s also PTPA Award Winning – parent evaluators fell in love with it’s ease of use and ability to keep babies on their tummies.
TUMZEEs are available in five (5) bright colours, and are available at select retailers across Canada. (Online shopping coming soon.)
