Post subject: belly play & autism
Hi,

My little boy is 3 months and I've started to give him belly play time for the last few weeks but he absolutely hates it and starts crying after a couple of minutes. I heard this is an indicator for autism. Is that true or are there a lot of normal babies who hate 'tummy time'?

He does smile a lot, and I'm sure he responds to our smiles. He makes some eye contact, but not a huge amount, but he is only 3 months...

Many thanks,

Sarah

he sounds perfectly normal to me (obviously im not a doctor though) but when andrew was 3 months he HATED tummy time with a passion so much so he started getting a flat head from being on his back so much, now though he is 6months old and loves tummy time because he can roll about etc... also the smiles are a good sign too i think because autistic children dont respond to social situations etc dont quote me on that though lol

anyways like i said he sounds perfectly normal to me... also have you ever lay on ur tummy like they have to?... try it!! i did and its mightily uncomfortable!!! do perservere though!! tummy time is fab and builds up their muscles Very Happy

My 13 year old has aspergers syndrome (autism) and he loved tummy time! All babies are different.
