As suggested by some of you I tried giving my baby tummy time on the bed and she enjoyed it, But I could see that she was trying to lift her head up(chin up milestone) My question is when the time comes for chin up milestone which is usually after 3 months will she turn her self down and lift her chin up? Because now I'm turning her down. Will this not disturb her milestone?

No i dont think it will disturb her milestones becca. She is an early learner so she will disrupt all milestones!!!

Hi mommy
This is a good question.
This activity of the baby to raise her head is jus a response to the tummy time and its largely confused for chin up but it's the imbalance of muscle that happens, but it is absolutely fine under supervision no worries. Relax.
Even topling to sides us due to the same, many confuse n say the baby jus turned herself to sides but its not so.
Rebecca Prakash
Hope I cleared your doubts.
As u said chin up will happen after the neck muscles gain strength n they are able to hold their head up.
