  • There's no harm in helping him if he is truly frustrated. Leave his arm wherever he has it and try to continue from there so he succeeds. If there is no way he can get it from that position do whatever motion is closest to what he is trying. His natural inclination needs to be part of the motions or it will take longer and will be even more frustrating. GL

  • If you keep showing him and helping him, hell figure it out. And cookie, she was asking how she could help her son keep his arm out of the way so he can roll better. Not for people to brag that thier kid is doing it earlier than hers....

  • You could roll him a few times to show him how it's done.  My kids loved to be rolled back end forth at that age.
