We start to develop core strength as infants. If children are given frequent opportunities to be on the floor as babies, especially on their bellies, they will start to develop their core muscles. For instance, when babies are given “tummy time,” they learn to start lifting their head up. This develops the muscles in the neck and back. The neck muscles need to be strengthened in order to support better looking and listening. Tummy time also helps them start to transfer their weight to other parts of their body, strengthening those areas as well.
