  • 4 months ,scared the hell out of me too! I laid her down on my bed next to me and I was putting my shoes on so I could take her out for a walk. next thing boom she rolled onto the floor. I called my husband at work in hysterics. Im not sure who cried harder me or my daughter. we had thick carpeting and a low bed thank god and she was fine , scared though. Thank god for my husband being a nurse to he was able to keep a level head and calm me down.

  • My son rolled back to front for the first time at 5 months, then actively tried not to do it again until 8 months, when he started rolling all over the place.

  • i don't think anything is wrong with a 5 month old not rolling.. i googled it, and a lot of what came up said that a baby normally rolls both ways by 6-7 months old
