Signs of a Good Tummy Time

tummy time Aug 05, 2022

(Scroll to the bottom for tummy time warning signs).

People always ask me... How can you tell if a child has had good Tummy Time experience? Here is a great example of me working a healthy, five month old. Look at what I’m pointing out to you.

  1. Nose crossing midline: Does her nose cross midline when she looks from side to side?
  2. Vision: Is she able to look up and down? Side to side? Does she have visual remembrance? Can she see from near- to far-sighted? Does she work the room and back to you? She won’t have smooth vision, because she’s five month of age. She’s working around the room rather than because of her body’s movements.
  3. Floats in and out of a horizon: Does she float in a horizontal position? Can she float from horizontal to sitting position? Does she float from side to side? Look at how easy she goes in and out of any position.

How do I start TODAY to help my baby’s Milestone Momentums?

Why a Baby Hates Tummy Time - What to Do About It

Difficulty in tummy time is an early warning sign for movement deviations.


A baby can hate tummy time because of...

  • Reflux,
  • A Heavy Head
  • Lacks Rotational Movements in the Spine and/or Pelvis
  • or a Stiff Ribcage
A baby should enjoy tummy time and have a nice sweeping of the nose back and forth as the baby is playing with movements that create functional rolling over, crawling, and walking.
If a baby's tummy time is unsuccessful for any reason it's likely the child will have difficulty in later milestones; either they will be awkward, delayed, or not happen at all.
Milestones should never be skipped, and if a baby is unable to perform those movements due to medical complications, birth trauma, or lack of movement in the body, Movement Lesson will help you put the Milestone Momentum back in your baby.

Movement Lesson is the only modality that offers milestone courses that teach you how...

Number One Impact on Baby Development

Movement organization starts at birth when the baby comes out of the vaginal canal.


When a baby has been birth via c-section, with an epidural through the vaginal canal, or cord complications when the baby is coming out of the vaginal canal, the baby's ability to have healthy rotational responses is at risk. 


The most important factor that affects your child's development! Key things that affect your baby's developmental milestones! What to look for, what to do, birth trauma, and genetics, learn early intervention activities with Movement Lesson.


In this video I explain the creations of movement in the body and that movement's relationship to gravity. 



How a baby rolls over is a tell tale sign of their gravity and movement relationship. 


In this video, I evaluate a baby rolling over and what it means for their potential development based off of the baby's relationship with gravity.

Method by Anat Baniel vs Movement Lesson

What is the difference between the Method developed by Anat Baniel and Movement Lesson™?

Anat Baniel has focused her method on brain plasticity (neuroplasticity) and the brain's ability to make changes in movement. 


The goal is to wake up the brain so it can make more powerful movement changes.


The goal is to overcome limitations through the power of the brain.


Anat teaches parents and practitioners 9 Essential to overcome pain and increase vitality


Most importantly the Method created by Anat Baniel focuses on the brain's ability to change and is the heart of the body's ability to learn movement and thinking patterns.


ML believes that movement maps the brain, the brain cannot map movement.  


The brain is powerful and when an easier way to create movement is shown to the brain, new neuroconnections are made and the brain goes with what is easier to create function and movement in the body.

Quantum Reflex Integration vs Movement Lesson Reflex Integration

In the video below Michelle talks about the creation of reflexes, how reflexes are misidentified, and how you need rotational movements to integrate true primitive reflex responses. 


A program that uses QRI harmonic laser to integrate what is believed to be infant reflexes by putting the low-level laser on acu-points and known reflex patterns.


Movement Lesson does have a laser program, but a laser is not necessary to integrate a child's primitive reflexes. 


Movement Lesson believes that reflexes are movements needed by the skeletal system to be able to go into developmental movement patterns.


To successfully integrate reflexes you need to understand where a child is at in the movement process and then start to organize the body according to that process so the body can start to naturally integrate true reflex responses.

Milestone Momentum for Baby and Child Development

When EXACTLY should your baby be doing each milestone?
When should you Start Being Worried about your baby's development?
There is a SPECIFIC PROCESS of movement that gives your child Milestone Momentum.
When milestones are Skipped Or Delayed, your child has deviated off the Milestone Momentum Pathway.
Transitional and Functional Movements are what happens when a baby is on track with their Movement, Vision, and Push/pull Milestones.
NEVER should a child look stuck in their movements.
NEVER should a child look stiff in their movements.
NEVER should a child look laid back in their movements.
In the case where a child has birth trauma, genetics, or unknown issues that are causing developmental delay every child can have Milestone Momentum put into their system so that child can have the opportunity to experience daily progress in their functional movements and abilities.
It's never too late to give your child...

What EXACTLY does your child need?

You want movement!
You want progression!
And that is Exactly what Movement Lesson offers, Progression which equals Milestone Momentum.
It’s the case for many of our kiddos that they are not doing a movement or milestone because their body literally DOES NOT KNOW HOW.

Movement that was stuck and impossible we need to unstuck so movement can Be Possible.

You don’t have to be a pro at this to Create Movement Possibilities for your child.

Where is my Child's Balance?! - Why Does My Child Keep Falling Over

WHERE is my Child’s BALANCE?!


Have you ever been falling asleep and you almost feel like you are floating almost like you are in an upright position? 


And then...


You are falling...






and WHAM!


You startle Big Time and you are back in your body in a horizontal position. 


Knowing where we are at in space is Super Important. 


I am not talking about in relationship to the floor, but in your relationship to gravity and your force interaction relationships. 


Your body needs to know when it is, Horizontal, or Vertical whether or not I am laying on the floor or hanging in the air.


When we move, we should be building a Symbiotic Relationship With Gravity. 


We experience gravity in 360 degrees. It's all around us. 


That being said our balance has to be in 360 degrees.


A child shouldn't be randomly falling, (yes we may occasionally trip on things, I am not talking about that kind of falling)....

Functional Rotational Movements and Milestone Development

Rotation and Movement

Milestone development is not based on strength but one's ability to rotate in and through what seems like invisible space around us, but really it's gravity and the interaction our body has with gravity.


For a child what makes the stepping stone of milestone development possible is the child’s ability to successfully move in and out of each milestone independently using rotational movements.


Now I keep saying rotation.



Because, yes, you can work on muscle strengthening so a child can muscle through movements, but eventually the child will reach a point where they can’t muscle through anymore because their body is too heavy and gravity has become too much to work against.


It has nothing to do with strength.


Which is counterintuitive.


We think we just need to build more strength but movement shouldn’t take work and when it does we don’t want to do it anymore.


When you focus on...
