How old do babies roll over on their own??

My baby boy is 16 weeks old and he just rolled over from his back to his tummy today. Is that normal? Is he behind or ahead? Either way we are so proud of him!!! He's growing up so fast!!

  • All babies development at their own pace, but like your son, my daughter didn't start regularly rolling over until 4 months. Watch out, because now he is going to be your very own roly poly . . . rolling everywhere!

  • my baby rolled from tummy to back at 3 months, but went from her back to her tummy a couple days ago at 4 months! and has done it a couple more times since. even without rolling shes scooting around like crazy now!

  • my 12 week old is getting close. She can get on her side when she is on her back or tummy but has yet to roll all the way over. I give her a couple more weeks and she may have it. The parents as teachers friend of mine says anywhere from 3- 5 months is normal but some are earlier and some are later. Sounds like your boy is right on track. Congrats to your son, that is a big step!

  • Please do not base your baby on other babies...everyone is of the biggest mistakes that people make is comparing their baby to others....good for him though....mine rolled over on her very own at 3 months..
