  • anywhere from 3-6 months i think is normal, but not to say it isn't normal if they do it before or after. Every child is different. My first started at 5 1/2 months. My second started at 6 months. I also know some babies that started before and after the 3-6 months.

  • My daughter didn't roll over until 5 months. I would help her by putting her on her tummy and rolling her over myself, and then cheering and clapping for her "yay you did it!" and then I kept doing it here and there during play time. Little by little she started doing some on her own. She was rolling over by herself by the next morning.

  • my daughter is only 2 months and she can already roll over, i think it all depends on the development of your child. everyones baby is different..

  • My ds was 5 months but he was premature. Anywhere from birth to 6 months I think is normal.

  • All 5 of mine did right around 4 months. Once they hit three months don't trust them not to or you may wind up with a baby on the floor.

  • My first son rolled over tummy to back by 1 month and back to tummy by 3 months. My second son is 3 months old and only as of last night is he rolling over tummy to back consistently.

  • My daughter is getting close to doing it. I think a couple more weeks and she will have it. She is 11 weeks old. She gets on her side and the flops back down. She also goes to physical therapy once a week and I think all the tummy time and stretching we have to do is helping her along on that aspect.
