thats ok. all babies do that. there is no way v can avoid tummy time. its the most essential growth mechanisam for a baby. start with what ever time baby is comfortable and gradually increase. i started with 40 sconds and built up on that.
Has she started sitting? is she rolling? If she have the urge to sit...but rather you are keeping her on tummy.. then also they will cry. Some kids will cry coz...they want to crawl or roll back..but they don't know how to..out of desperation they cry. It's normal. don't worry.
she has learned to turn on her by 4 th month. but till now she is not able to stay in her tummy and play for sometime.. that's why I'm worried . Also, in bed she is able to roll back . but in a mat she hates it

Hi Radhi anand some baby doesn't like tummy time reason could be many like they may scared as they don't see anyone around...or may be not comfortable or feeling uneasiness for breathing it could be anything so don't force her it's OK give her some more time she will do it by own.....put her on soft cushions keep toys around her she will learn it gradually n enjoy...meanwhile you do more focus on her tummy massage n do hands n legs exercise.
thanks for the tag asha chaudhry and radhi anand
thank u so much everyone
hi radhi, my baby used to also initially turn on bed but could not do properly on mat. i understood that on mat it must be paining for baby. also, on bed, because the bed gets squished, baby will find it easier to turn. do give tummy time for a few seconds, and distract with some toys.
it happens with my baby also.. dont worry its normal..
