  • put a blanket on the floor. Lay next to your baby with a toy. Show your baby a couple times how to roll over. Move the toy around to see if you can get her/him interested in the toy and trying to reach for it. Keep in mind that some babies skip rolling altogether and go straight for crawling. Keep encouraging tummy time as much as possible to help build those muscles. If baby never rolls it's no big deal, as long has she/he starts sitting up and or crawling. Good luck!

  • put a toy just out of reach

  • put a toy or something in front of your baby to them to reach for, or on the floor on a blanket, when you least expect it ,she/he will roll over,,dont rush then and don.t be nervous not all children are the same, they develop at different stages,,,, my daughter did not crawl she went from...sliding on the stomach to walking, she's 20 now,,,, good luck and god bless,,,

  • she will roll over when she is ready, but if you want to encourage her i would give her lots of tummy time. babies usually roll from tummy to back first, so if she has tummy time and gets tired of it [which usually doesn't take long] then maybe that will make her go onto her back.
