How soon did you child start to rollover completely?

My daughter is 5 months 2 weeks old and maybe a week prior to her turning 5 months she began rolling from stomach to back, but she hasn't been able to roll from stomach to back. So I'm wondering how soon should I expect her to roll from stomach to back? Or should she have done this already?

  • Tummy time woman, tummy time. She will do it soon. She probably does it when you aren't looking then hurries up and flips back

  • It varies widely. My second rolled over all the way when he was a week old, much to my surprise and dismay, luckily he was on the sofa at the time and the floor was close and well-carpeted. My first son, I'd say about 4-5 months. If you are worried be sure to ask your pediatrician.

  • I believe my son did it at 4 months but I think 6 months is "normal".

  • My son rolled from stomach to back at 2 weeks and back to stomach at 2 months.

  • I'm not concerned about it really since she is showing signs that she does want to roll completely over, she get's halfway and then she goes back on her back

     LOL Morgan. I try putting her on tummy time but now that she has it figured out she just rolls on her back again LOL.

  • My daughter is 6 months and still isnt rolling over yet she did it like 3 times one day and hasnt since. I wouldnt worry though every child is different and go at their own pace for everything

  • Cyn do you know any grown people that don' t know how to roll over? lol

    She will do it....there's no for sure age that all kids start doing things all. They all develop so differently. I say she'll do it by 8 months for sure.

  • I find that it takes a few weeks after rolling on her back that she is able to do a complete roll
