if your baby enjoys the tummy time you can give as per your wish.. yes.. you can start now.. and just keep in mind to b around the baby.. don't leave your baby alone..

you can start putting baby on tummy right from birth. but until baby starts rolling over by himself, you should be around during tummy time so that baby would not accidentally suffocate. initially start with a minute or two and build up the timing as baby gets used to it... it will help reduce gas and also strengthen back and neck muscles...
