  • All baby's are different so each baby does it at different times. My son didn't roll over all the way until he was like 7 months. He would roll to his sides but never all the way. I just don't think he felt comfortable. I wouldn't push her i think she will get it when she is comfortable doing it. Hope this helps some

  • She is fine, I wouldn't worry about it because all babies reach certain things at different times, if you are really concerned though ask her doc

  • My daughter had a similar issue. She couldn't figure out the placement of her arm so she could complete the roll. I simply showed her that her arm needed to be above her head, not along her side a couple times, and she was off. She began using rolling to transport herself everywhere. Good luck.

  • my daughter did the same thing i showed here how to do it a cople of times but i would also put a toy just out of her reach to encourage her to rol to get it she got the hang of it really quick i also did the same thing for crawling
