My son is almost 7 months old & won't roll over...he has in the past & he can sit on his own, as well as, he likes standing up (assisted of course)...I'm just wondering if I need to worry that he's not rolling over?

  • Hi there - I am going through a similar situation. My son is almost 7 months and will only roll from his back to belly. Once on his belly, his arms just go out to the side in the air. Has no interest in propping himself up. Yet, he can sit on his own. But, he cannot get into a sittling position on his own. He likes to stand as well. We met w/ some doctors and they thought some early physical therapy wouldn't hurt. But, I am also comforted from stories like sweetstkisses who say their kids just didn't do anything until a later stage.

  • If he's accomplishing other milestones without any trouble then I wouldn't worry. It's possible your child has no desire to roll over. If they've done it before and haven't since, then I would think they just aren't interested. You said that he sits up on his own, stands, etc, so it shows that he has no problem moving around. I wouldn't worry about it.
