Why Tummy Time is Important for Mom and Dad
Becky Meachum is mom to 9-month-old crawling, squealing, teething, sleep-regressing, trouble-making, growing, giggling, loving boy/girl twins who are the world’s LOUDEST blessing! They make Becky better at her job as they have made her appreciate what families with young ones go through every day, and they made her realize how difficult and soul-sucking things like tummy time can be! For babies and mamas alike. Becky is a pediatric physical therapist who works in an early intervention setting, meaning she provides physical therapy services to children ages 0-3 in the comfort of their homes (when COVID-19 isn’t rearing its ugly head, of course!)
