Rolling over.... BabyMakinMachine. 3 kids; Ohio 634 posts

When did your LO start rolling over? My youngest is 5 months today and has rolled over but I wouldn't say it's enough to tell people that he's actually rolling over. He was a preemie, 36w4d Idk if that matters....

first rolled back to front around 6 weeks the from to back a few weeks later. Second rolled back to front at like a week and front to back at like 2.5 months. She's been using rolling to get around since about 3.5 months.

36w4d is nearly term, are they considered a premie?

DD could roll from back to front pretty early on, like within the first three months at the most. It took her a lot longer to master front to back, though.

I don't think so, but you're still supposed to go off their adjusted age with things like milestones.



OP- Dd has been rolling from tummy to back since 3 months and she started rolling from back to tummy at 4 1/2 months.

My friend had preemie twins at 34 weeks, and her pedi told her that it could either fall at the adjusted milestone or the additional time needed for development.

Yeah, it's just a rule-of-thumb. My 35 weeker (also had IUGR so he stopped growing at 30 weeks) was hitting his milestones right on target for his non-adjusted age, but generally you should go by the adjusted age... though it could take longer or lesser time. Every child is unique.

Do you adjust for all babies born before 40 weeks or just before 37?
DD1 was born at 38&1d, but stopped growing at 36. Nobody ever said anything to me about it.

I'm pretty sure it's just if they were born before term.

No one ever said anything about adjusted age to me and my pedi is a twit. He rolled a few times at a few weeks old from belly to back, yesterday 4 times from belly to back and never from back to belly.

They never really said anything to me about it either, unless I brought up a concern. I think they just like to go with case-by-case so they don't force expectations onto parents, as it is completely tentative.
