An Exercise Ball – I love this during the early days of tummy time. The ball is great for positioning baby while learning to tolerate tummy time. You can read all about why the exercise ball is one of my favorites for tummy time.
An Activity/Music Table – I know one doesn’t often think of this as a toy for tummy time but in all reality it is a great toy well before your baby is standing. You can read my more detailed post on why and activity table is one of my favorites.
Boppy Pillow – This is a great option for positioning baby for different play activities. They are also useful when baby is learning to tolerate tummy time as they place the shoulders slightly above the hips while in tummy time. This position makes it just a little easier for baby.
Contrast Cards – Babies tend to love contrast as it is easy for them to see. You can get an easy to print set in my store or make your own. You can also check out our contrast card board that has been great for tummy time!
Baby Gym – Another great option for tummy time and beyond. Get a baby gym with a detachable mat and use it as a tummy time mat. I personally like to use the gym as a tummy time visual. You can read why the baby gym is one of my favorites for tummy time and baby play!
Tummy Time Resource Guide – This guide is packed with tummy time information all in one spot. It makes life easier by having it all in one handy guide. It includes the background of tummy time, evidence for tummy time, how much tummy time, the tummy time progression, tummy time positions, and tummy time play ideas all in one place!

Tummy Time Wear – Of course this is far from a necessity but I love the tummy time advertisement my little guy wears around! You can choose from several different colors on each product too!
