  • He is only 3 months. They usually don't start until 4 months or later. Each child is different. Can he support his own neck and track objects? Does he reach for things? If so he is fine. Does he have good muscle tone in his arms and legs? There is nothing wrong with it. By 3.5 months our daughter was sitting and by 4 she was all over the place rolling but that doesn't mean the next child will do the same.

  • Every baby develops at a different rate, but if you are really worried take him to the dr.

  • I definitely think it's normal. I have some friends who's babies never rolled over until 7 months or so, and some that did it a lot sooner. My son began rolling over about 3-4 months old. Every child develops at a different rate. I wouldn't be too concerned.
