my son hates tummy time and every since hes learned how to roll over at 4mths hes been avoiding it. now hes a professional at rolling over. every time i put him on his tummy before i can blink hes already on his back. no matter how i hold him the minute i let him go hes rolled over. and if i put him on my legs or chest for tummy time he just balls up and cries until i let him go and he rolls over. im afraid he wont be able to learn to crawl if he never stays on his stomach long enough to even try.

kristal is right, get down there with him, and play, make sure you are on your tummy too. Other than that, All I can suggest is a different type of tummy time mat, probably one of the ones that hold him up off the ground, he'll have a harder time flipping onto his back. One like this http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=6487076. There are other varieties, though, but I really suggest one of this type.
