  • My first rolled over once (on accident) at about 5 months old, then wouldn't do it again until about 8 months old. Our pedi said that it's nothing to worry about, as long as he was moving around somehow by 9 months (rolling, crawling, scooting, army crawling, walking, didn't matter), he was fine. And he was by that time, lol, rolling all over the place. So no need to worry yet. :)

  • Actually when my son was 6 months he didn't really know how to either but by 7 months he was a pro. And he met all his other milestones early or on time. So its not really much to worry about. Just make sure he gets plenty of tummy time. I would give my son about 2hrs a day(spread through out the day). Good luck

  • Maybe you hold or wear him too much? Give him more time on a blanket on the floor, sometimes on his back & sometimes on his tummy, to give him a chance to build up his muscles.
