Any ideas for playing/entertaining a three month old?

We do tummy time but he gets fussy after a couple of minutes (due to colic), won’t entertain his bouncer. He's not fussed on toys either, he’d much rather be held which causes havoc on my back (complications of epidural).

I worry he’s spending too much time on his back.

Don't worry about him spending too much time on his back. It's actually counterintuitive to put him on his tummy before he is ready. He is supposed to be on his back now in order for him to learn and turn on his own.

Look at the work of Emmy Pikler who is a child development specialist. Let him take his time with toys around him instead of over him. This will encourage him to turn on his own.
