You often hear that the earlier tummy time begins, the better it is for babies and their development! Baby activity mats encourage a baby to lift his or her head and build muscles in the neck, shoulders, and back. Developing this initial strength is important as they ultimately learn how to push themselves up to a sitting position and when crawling or walking.
Tummy time mats also give babies a different view of the world, rather than the usual view they get while on their backs. Teachers and caretakers can use play mats to introduce them to different animals and colors, while also gazing at their reflection in a mirror for enhanced sensory stimulation.
