LO will be 6 months next wednesday and he still isnt rolling over. Not even from tummy to back. He shows no interest in even trying to do it.
He gets about 10-15mins of tummy time between each feed.
Just curious to know how old your LO was when they started rolling?
Im pretty sure my older 2 were rolling by this age.

My son was rolling both ways before 4 months. Is he doing everything else he should developmentally?

Quoting TmA's mommy:" My son was rolling both ways before 4 months. Is he doing everything else he should developmentally?"


yea he is on track with everything else, and can already sit up by himself.
He is a lil on the chunkier side though. If i put him on his back and get his attention to either his left or right side, he will roll onto his side and his lil legs and head come off the ground as he tries to roll, but he cant just get there.
Its like watching a turtle stuck on its back lol

Aww poor guy, maybe thats the issue. As long as he is doing other things then I wouldn't worry about it.

Back to belly for some odd reason first at 4 months, then belly to back on purpose around 5.
You can help him figure it out by showing him how to do it?
