  • All babies develop at different rates. My son started rolling over at 3 months, Also holding up his head, at 4 months he started "swimming" on the floor, by the end of the fifth month he was crawling short distances. If you are concerned ask your child's pediatrician

  • She will do it when she is ready. They develop at their own pace. Do not worry. There is nothing you can do to hurry the process.

  • Yes it's perfectly fine hun! All babies develop at different rates. As long as your baby is picking her head up and is active, she'll get it. My dd is almost six months and she started rolling over a few weeks ago. Just be careful because it happens when you least expect it! lol
