She will easily last a half hour without much entertainment at this point.

My DD too! She hated tummy time from the beginning. Our pediatrician said not to worry about it bc she had awesome neck control anyway and the real benefits of it start around 4 months. Well, she learned to roll from back to tummy at just shy of 4 months and if she rolled herself would hang out for a good 10 mins or so but to this day if you try to put her down on her tummy, forget it! Lol. She started rolling from tummy to back a few weeks later but seems to have forgotten how to now. She's only done it like once or twice in the past few days. Instead she just lays there and cries til we turn her back over. It's actually kind of pitiful.

Probably about 3 minutes! He can't stand tummy time, and seems to have forgotten how to roll over. It's so annoying!
