  • Once your baby has head control, and about the same time that he learns to sit on his own, he'll learn to roll over. He'll eventually learn to flip over from his back to his tummy and vice versa, and he'll use his newfound skill to get around a bit. The incentive for those early rolls is often an elusive toy — or you. Also most babies start around 5-6 months, but so babies have strong legs and he couldve kicked himself off of a wall or crib bar and made himself turn. I would get those wedges for him to be still in his sleep.

  • We had some odd early rollovers. They're used to flipping around in your belly and still working it out of their system. You may see a few more rollovers, but he'll quit soon until he's older (3-4 months). Keep a close eye on him, swaddle him, place rolled up blankets next to him when he's laying on his back sleeping to keep him from doing it - at this age it's not a good thing.
