Baby not pushing up on arms

My baby seems to have plateaued in tummy time (if that’s a thing). He plays on his tummy pretty well, but he never pushes all the way up onto extended arms. He’s almost 7 months now and I feel like he should be doing that, right?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi, thanks for reaching out. Do you have toys at all different heights around him? Also some vertical play surfaces are great. Basically you want to start to move his focus upwards so he has a reason to push up!

You can also play with him lying over your legs and slowly move him more or less off your legs to challenge his arms. Have a toy on the ground or in front of him for him to play with. Hopefully that makes sense!
