“Our doctor said he needs more tummy time for his flat spot, to strengthen his muscles, as well as to help him roll over,” she added. “He doesn’t like tummy time, but it’s not like he even gets to the point of crying. He just makes uncomfortable noises.”

While another replied, “I like how she got shipped home at the end of the story!”
