My baby is 2 1/2 months and he has started to roll over from his tummy to his back. What is the average age when babies start to roll over to one side? i feel that it is too early for him to be doing that.

  • It's obviously not TOO early since he's doing it, I think that is a little earlier than typical but that's awesome! My son was a super early roller and was rolling over tummy to back by 1 month and back to tummy by 3 months.

  • I think it depends on the baby. Mine was rolling over from her back to her side at 4 days old.

  • I think all answers are good. If he does it consistantly, then that is the way he does things. Mine did the same thing, she hated being on her tummy. Is 5 mos and is pulling up and wanting to cruise already. So each one differs.

  • Nope, he's just a good mover! My guy is the same age and I'd be thinking it was too early as well, only because my baby is growing way too fast for me!

  • Why are you worried that he seems to be a bit ahead?

  • They all develop at their own pace, have fun with it. My mum said I was lifting myself up with my arms, head steady, like i was doing push ups, on the birthing joke, my god father was the doctor who delivered me. She also said I was rolling complete rolls when we came home from the hospital, like the girl above whose baby rolled over at 4 days. Some babies are just stronger and more active! My husband and I also walked at 6 monthes....LOL Enjoy it, mine is almost 14 weeks and he rolled to his side the first 2 weeks, and since he has plumped up, no more of that LOL But we keep waiting....
