Infants on Tummies?

Just one more story from the Virginia-licensed and nationally accredited child care center I visited. A teacher placed an infant on the floor on his stomach and said it was “tummy time”. She worked around the room, changing diapers and attending to other babies, as did the other teacher in the room. After eight minutes, she noticed that the little guy on his tummy was tiring and showing an inability to continue to hold his head up, so she sat next to him and picked him up.  The problem? 

Teachers placed some infants in cribs without putting on their sleeping sacks, which make it more difficult for infants to roll over onto their stomachs.  The problem?
