not rolling yet? Nikki Hart 1 child; Portland, Indiana 308 posts

I know all baby's are different but I am starting to worry a bit. My LO just turned four months old on the 20th, and she shows absolutely now interest in rolling over. She has rolled from back to side a few times but I think it was by accident. Is this normal or is it something I should bring up with her pedi? She doesn't have another appointment until Jan 28 since her pedi is out on vacation.

It's fine. My almost 5 months old doesnt roll either.
And my first daughter didn't roll until like 7months or something. She hated tummy time and was lazy lol.

That's good to know. Everyone keeps telling me I hold her to much and she is never going to learn.

Well, my friends baby didn't roll over til almost 4 months and they told her he was just fine, once he did he didn't stop though. I don't think you have anything to worry about, at least not before the Dr. appointment. Someone correct me if I'm wrong?

Some babies make different milestones at different times... my son was almost 7 mos before he started rolling.

Wow does any baby LIKE tummy time? I thought mine was different or in pain. She hated it for 7 months, she would not even lay on her belly when she started moving.

Do they usually do belly to back first? My LO is actually the opposite and loves her tummy time. When we do it she will just lay there with her head up looking around at everything and giggle when she finds me lol.

I'm starting to think my LO is the only exception lol. She hates to be on her back she prefers her belly.
