My daughter is almost 6 months old and she hasnt rolled yet should i be concerned??

Nope - all babies develop at different rates but it evens out after a couple of years (so Im led to believe) Just keep playing with them and helping them when theyre trying to roll. My daughter is actually at the bottom of her healthy weight range and still cant roll from her back to her tummy (although she can roll the other way) so I dont know how much weight has to do with it its just a case of when they are ready...

My guy can roll both ways, but hardly ever does. As long as your daughter his hitting her other milestones, I wouldn't worry!

My 6 month old hasn't rolled over either...he hates being on his stomache but loves to sit up so I let him sit up with support from an early age. He can sit on his own and play now...I think they are just going to skip this mile stone. :)

My babe is 6 mos, 1 wk and still hasn't rolled over either. She will roll to her side, but needs an extra push to get all the way over. She will scootch all over on her back, but just won't roll on over. When she is on her tummy, she kicks her legs and wiggles her arms as though she's trying to crawl. I put my palms up against her heels to give her something to push off on, but she's not quite there yet. She gets so frustrated - you can tell that she is ready to take off! I wouldn't worry about your daughter not rolling over. I think that she'll either do it on her own time, or skip it all together.

my daughter will be 6 months tomorrow. She knows how to roll over (I've seen her do it several times) but she WILL NOT do it anymore! She also hates to be on her tummy, which could be part of the problem. She likes to stand and she pushes around on her back lots. If you really worried about it I would just talk to your doctor about it! Don't be afraid to ask him/her any questions youhave! Even if they seem dumb!

my daughter is also very large, she weighs 20lbs, she's a few days shy of 6 months, in 12 month clothes, and she will get half way and get stuck but with minimal assistance she will roll all the way, we practice all the time. I know the first time she does it on her own i'll be at work boy will i be mad!!

my son started rolling over at 5months three weeks, but can only get from back to stomach. he is the size of a nine month old and he is only six months. dont be concerned. can she roll onto her side?

My son is not rolling over either. He does love it up on his feet- so I'm not sure if he will ever do it!

my daughter isn't rolling either, i just asked my doctor about it at a recent visit, she said not to worry as she is doing plenty of other things developmentally for her age. She is sitting strongly on her own and is interacting well. They will do it in their own time :-)

My son just turned 6 months and he's only rolled over like 3 times. Is your daughter real chunky? My son's a chunker and I think that's why he's only done it 3 times. He can roll onto his side, he just can't get all the way over. I wouldn't be concerned though, I don't think rolling is a major milestone, like walking. I was a little concerned about my son's lack of rolling, but a few mornings lately when I've gone in to get him he's been in a totally different position than when I left him so I know he's capable of moving! I'm sure if she sees something she really wants she'll find a way to get to it!

I don't think you should be concerned yet. Give her more tummy time. Play with her more on the floor. "Make her roll" is a game my friend plays with her daughter. She physically rolls her daughter over and then over time she rolls her daughter half way and let her do the rest. But I reccommend lots of floor time. Never know, she might skip rolling and go striaght to crawling!
