Default Tummy time

My daughter is 3 months and she absolutely hates tummy time. every time i try to give her belly time either on her play mat which is made for both belly and back play time or propped on her Boppy pillow, she just scream cries! She hates it. Is that normal? What do i do? i heard babies are supposed to get tummy time but she never wants it and im afraid it will hinder her from learning to crawl.

Any suggestions or advice?
I would greatly appreciate it!

Hi MollysMommy, did you find a way to make this happen?

I heard it's very important too and lying on their back constantly causes flatness on the back of their head. And it's also necessary to increase upper body strenght and make them learn how to lift their head and neck up. If you have found a way to make it easier, please do share!

you are so right about the flatness on the back of the head, she does have a little flat part. But her tummy time is getting better! Little by little. She has strong neck muscles (she was holding her own head up the day she was born when the nurse was holding her!) Ill put her on my belly on her belly like someone suggested to me on here. and when I lay her on her playmat ill lay with her and kind of raise the upper half of her for a few minutes and play with her and then she will eventually keep her upper half raised up on her own. She still doesnt like it much its a process tho. Shes spoiled rotten and much rather be held to play (or just held in general lol) but we are trying to break that as well.
