Gyms, Tummy Time and Playmats step in when parents need to rest and baby needs to be entertained. Of all the myriad potential purchases that a new parent can make, a good play mat or activity gym is among the most likely to earn its keep. A safe, comfortable and stimulating place where the infant is happy to lie, and later sit, is likely to prove invaluable.
A recent growth in purchasing large playmats has been observed as tummy time can help babies develop strong head, neck and shoulder muscles and promote certain motor skills. Tummy time can also prevent the back of baby's head from becoming flat. Research also suggests that babies who spend time on their tummies crawl on their stomachs earlier than do babies who do not practice tummy time.
