  • Depends on the kid. My daughter started that at 7 months and my son started it at 4 months.

  • Yeah 4-5 months is average. Mine did it once at 3 months and then didn't do it again til around the end of her 4th month.

  • I've recently read in a baby book that some babies skip rolling over now that almost everyone puts their babies on their backs. It's harder for them to roll over from their back to the tummy so some don't roll over until after they are already crawling. My daughter is 3 months and she doesn't even attempt to roll from her back. When we're doing tummy time she does start to roll but she doesn't even get halfway there, yet. My SIL's baby started rolling at 4.5 months.
