  • Every baby does this at a different speed than others. Mine didn't roll until she was 5 mos. Just let your baby develop naturally at his own pace and be PROUD.

  • mine did that too at 6 weeks, she did it a couple of times, turned out it was just an accident. She's almost 3 months now and hasn't done it since then.

  • Wow! He's early. Make sure you never place him on a raised surface - he may very well roll himself off.
