What did or has your 4 month old done first?

A friend of mine has a 4 month old. Her daughter is one week younger than my son and has already mastered rolling from back to tummy and tummy to back. My son is just about to master setting up all by himself. I really want him to roll over but I know all babies develop diff. What about your 4 month old, what have they mastered or accomplished or about to figure out?

  • my son could roll on to his back from his tummy at 4 months. He is 4 1/2 months now and just started to roll onto his tummy and his back last week, along with crawling he is picking that up quite well. He cannot sit up on his own though. Don't worry about it. Some babies like your assistance more than being independent. So it's not that they are slow, no they just milk it, they'd rather you pick them up.
