Many people lay their babies on their stomachs for "tummy time" to stretch these muscles out and help with neck/back strength from early on (watching them carefully, of course). Is he able to do tummy time?

I knew someone this happened to but she was a little older than 4 months.  They had to give her muscle relaxers.  I'm glad to hear it's something that can be handled with PT instead.
