How old was your LO when they began rolling over?

Just curious! My 8 week old is beggining to roll to his side and sleep that occasionally. Wondering if he's going to start rolling over soon!

  • not sure when they did it from ack to belly unless I get out their baby books, but my oldest was always advanced for her age. She was rooling from her belly to her back at 6 weeks old my youngest was turning from belly to back at 8-12 weeks old I don't remember, but I know it wasn't far from her sister

  • #1 was 5 1/2 months
    #2 was 3 1/2 months
    #3 was 5 months
    #4 was exactly 3 months (the day she turned 3 months she rolled and then slept through the night...busy day, I guess)
    #5 was 3 1/2 months

    All 5 of them rolled back to front first and then figured out the other way a few days later. #2 actually rolled back to front to back all in one go. But they all spent all their time on the floor. I never held them all day so they had plenty of time to practice. The only time they were being held was when they were being held or were a little fussy...otherwise they were on the floor sleeping or playing.

  • my first baby was 3 months, 2nd baby did not roll over until close to 6 months old, but he was born with Down Syndrome, my 3rd baby rolled over at 3 months, and my 4th baby who is now 11 months old still mainly rolls from back to belly. He is making great progress though and is in early intervention.

  • Wow, 8 weeks! My daughter started rocking at about 4 months, and didn't fully roll over until recently, at 5 months. She's almost 6 months right now, and started rolling in full circles and sleeping on her side.
