yep my 5 month old has an easier time of rolling back to belly, and eventually gets tired of being on her belly but she struggles sometimes and I have to help her tuck her arm in so she can roll back. Maybe its hard for them because they are tired from the time spent on their bellies?

My son was the exact same way at 4 months. I was surprised to see him roll just that one way and it took him a long time to master rolling both ways. He is 9 months old and has it mastered and just started crawling a little lol. Mostly backwards for the moment, but every now and again will crawl a few steps forward :-). Don't worry you're little one will get there!

Don't worry mama. My twins are 6 months and just started doing this. The youngest will scream bloody murder when she gets stuck. She is not crawling nor acts like she is ready to crawl. So to me yours would be advanced. Also don't go just by their age if the baby was born early do an adjusted age. Like mine where born 3 weeks early so for their age for milestones is set at 5 months while their actual age is 6 months. Also, enjoy it now when baby starts crawling a whole new set of things happens.
