I know that all babies develop at different times, but I can't help being worried that he isn't rolling over. He picks up his head and back legs and moves to the side a little, but then he get frustrated and starts crying.

Do you think I am not doing enough tummy time? He hates being on his tummy though.

Should I just relax or should I be trying to help him do this?

How many of our LO's rolling over?

If baby is rolling over...did you help them learn? How?

It's vary natural to worry..

I honestly let him do it at his own pace.. Kids do things at different rates.. Those kids that roll first concentrate on moving verses others that don't roll over at that time are studying the world around them, learning different things.. Each child is learning something that the other one might not be.. Does that make sense?

In time, your baby will accomplish each mile stone.. Just try not to compare him to other kids..

Oh, and A.J has no desire to roll over.. But he has great head control and sits up great.. He can recognize when certain people enter the room.. He can tell when we leave the room.. He's vary smart..

Here's a good way to put it.. When a baby is born.. Does it mean the baby with the high APGAR score going to be smarter then the one baby with the low APGAR score? No.. In time, every baby reaches that certain level..

Danica isn't rolling yet either. When she's on her tummy she kinda wobbles back and forth, but not close to over. On her back she's just figured out to lift her legs to get to her side, but can't get herself all the way over yet.

I try to help her a little sometimes. I give her a finger to pull on when she's on her back. I haven't figured out any way to encourage tummy to back rolling...except putting her on her belly. She used to hate being on her tummy, but recently she has started to tolerate it and seem to actually enjoy it.

Don't worry about it...he'll get there in his own time.

thanks it makes me feel better to see that so many babies aren't there yet. Adrian's Mommy thank you for your post. I hadn't looked at it that way. Very good perspective.

Lucy loves tummy time but hasn't even tried rolling over yet. She much prefers to play peek-a-boo on her tummy.

Nope not rolling over at all.

I worry too - when others talk about how their baby is already in exersaucers, jumparoos, bumbo seats, etc. and Reagan is older than some of these babies - but still too small for most of those toys yet!

I always seem to compare Reagan (and most things in my life) to others - so I'm trying really hard not to do that anymore!!!

No rollin' here either! Bella twists (and shouts - LOL) but not even close to rolling. I brought it up to her doc because I was concerned too...and her doc basically told me to stop paying attention to the "milestones babies of certain ages should be hitting" and that every baby, just like adults, are different and do things at different times. Like I have said before in another post - it's not like our babies will grow up to be 28 year old adults that just can't roll over! LOL They will get there.

DD didn't roll over for the first time until 1 day before she turned 5 months. I would have her do a little bit of tummy time every day but she hated it so it never lasted long. But she got there (on accident the first time while reaching for her rabbit). And even though she rolled over a little later than some babies she was walking by 10 months which is pretty early.

Josiah rolled over at 2 months, they're all different. Watch, he'll probably walk late. lol They all seem to like to work on different skills at different times.

no rolling here yet, she tries but does what we call the superman pushes her arms and legs out at the same time so she wobles on her belly. I also think she will roll from back to tummy first with the way she moves around. she can get from back to her side really well but just not all the way over

No rolling over here either. She is tolerating tummy time a little better but only for a short while then she gets fussy. She prefers to be on her back to see everything and study her environment. She loves her Praise Baby DVD's with all the images and music. Her lates thing is to swing her head back and forth from side to side then she stops to look at you and giggles and starts back up again. She is also big on lifting her legs up as if she were going to grab her toes (but not actually grabbing them yet) And she loves to talk, she really gets going around my parents when they have her hang out with them and watch the news with them.

This is a more comforting chain than the sleep one! Owen has been twisting a lot and loves standing, but hates tummy time and even sitting sometimes. No rolling over, lots of looking around and babbling. (but no p's or b's like the babycenter email said...first time that email hasn't been correct for me since the early weeks of pregnancy!)

Kadence has rolled over once on accident. She kind of just fell to the side and got mad so she kicked her leg over. Aiden, my 5 year old, didn't roll til he was almost 6 months and still ended up walking at 9 months.
