He's rolled twice from his back to his tummy, but wasn't happy to find himself on his stomach and hasn't attempted it again. I know I should give him more tummy time but he cries so hard he throws up. He's started pushing his bum up in the air when I put him on his stomach, and lifts his head, but doesn't lift his chest up with his arms, which I think he needs to do to roll over. Anyone else with this problem?? He can almost sit on his own, and loves playing the sit-up, stand-up game but no rolling................

My son rolled over once at 5 months old and then did his best not to do it again. He didn't start rolling consistently (like to get somewhere or something) until 8 months. The doctor said it was fine at his 6 month visit and not to let anyone convince me otherwise. And he said at the 9 month visit that the thing they look for is that the baby is getting places somehow, whether by rolling, scooting, crawling, army crawling, walking, whatever. So it's nothing to worry about at all.
