If you've got a baby who's didn't doesn't love Tummy Time, one of my most recommended (and most successful) strategies is to use NOVELTY.
Novelty - introducing something new to explore during Tummy Time - gives your innately curious little squish more than a distraction, it provides engagement and learning.
You see, Tummy Time isn't a play activity - it's a position for play activities.
A CREATIVE TWIST FOR THE BABY WHO HATES TUMMY TIME

Alright, to be fair, let's not exclude babies who like Tummy Time in this activity. This is a fun one for ALL babies.
All you'll need is some little battery-operated tea candles (keep these safely stored away from babies and kids when not in use - but you already knew that, right?).
Ease baby into this activity by starting in a dimly lit room. Spread the tea lights on the floor in a good play area for baby. Once he's interested, flip off the lights and watch your little one visually explore his baby-friend light show. You can up the fun by doing this activity in front of a mirror.
This makes a great activity for squeezing in some last Tummy Time of the day as the sun goes down. You might even have baby spa time - giving a lotion massage after bath as baby enjoys his belly-down light show.
Closely supervise (eyes on baby within arm's reach) so that your baby doesn't grab or mouth the tea lights.
