Babies need time on their tummies to develop strong neck muscles which will help your baby accomplish all of her physical milestones like sitting, crawling, and walking. Your baby will naturally start trying to lift her head to see what is going on around her but she won't be able to hold her head up for long periods of time until she's around 3 or 4 months. Eventually your baby will use this position to roll over, scoot, and support herself with her arms.
