My little guy was born May 14th and he hasn't attempted to roll over from back to tummy or tummy to back. but he does everything else just fine. Found hands and feet, reaches for toys, "talks", and almost sits unsupported. Is there any other May babies who are not rolling over yet?

One of my friends showed me a little baby "exercise" to do to help him roll over so we are going to work on that. You put them on there side then tickle their back and tummy til they roll to their back or tummy. It is so cute cuz he just giggles and giggles. so we are gonna try this and keep playing while we learn to do baby things!

I was told to help them roll over put one leg over and let them try the rest.. My little girl is 5 months old and just now got the whole idea of rolling over . I would not worry about it to much every baby different..

my son was born may 22, he can roll from belly to back, but he cant roll back over to his belly yet

My little girl was born May 12th and has just started trying to roll over the past week or so. She gets almost there but gets stuck on her shoulder and flops back. And up until only about a week ago she absolutely hated being on her belly. She has yet to master sitting up completely on her own though.

My son was born on May 28, he has rolled over a handful of times, he sits up on his own and when lying on his belly inches up like a worm, trying to crawl. I find he stops himslef when he is about to roll from belly to back and he has only rolled from back to stomach once or twice. Every baby develops differently.

My little man was born 19th and while he has rolled tummy to back a couple of times he shows no sign of rolling back to tummy. I have come to the assumption most boys are just lazy so they will roll when they are ready too not when the milestones say they should.

My boy is rolling over, but I do know someone who both her kids didn't roll over till they were 7 months, or sit till they were 9 months. The youngest didn't crawl untill she was 10 months. He will do it when he is ready :-)

Every baby is different. Physical milestones are easier to see and chart, but I think sometimes we overlook the "look, listen, feel" babies' developments. Your baby may just be working on cognitive learning before physical learning. It's nothing to worry about. So many parents feel like their in a rat race to be the first in their group of friends who's baby crawled, walked, etc.
BTW my little girl was born May 31st and rolled over two weeks ago (at 19wks old) from back to her tummy. We'd been practicing rolling over for about a month before she did it. She got pretty good at it while holding onto my fingers. Then I bated her with her favorite toy (Grover) and she pulled herself over. Now every time I put her on the floor she rolls over to be on her tummy and look around. It's so great when they learn something new, they'll do it every chance they get!
Your lil guy will get there. Just make sure to give him lots of opportunities and have fun playing. :)

My Baby was born May 21st and he is doing all that your little one is but hasn't yet rolled all the way over. You have to remember that not all babies do everything at the same age...all babies are individuals so don't woory about it. They'll do it in their own time ;)

My son was born May 4th and this describes him to a T!! He will roll onto either side not completely to stomach.

my son was born may 2nd. he sits unsupported. he's eating solids.. he holds his own bottle reaches for toys etc. he will not roll over either! i'm glad my little guy's not the only one. it made me nervous bc when we went to his 4 month checkup, his doctor asked if he rolled over yet.. and she said he will in the next month.. now almost 2 months and still no rolling. :(

My baby was born May 17th and he does all of the sames things as yours. He does roll over but only from his back to his tummy. I wouldn't worry too much about it because once he figures it out, it'll just click! I think that it's kind of a fluke thing... they have to do it by accident a few times before they know how to do it for good. Besides, my little one often rolls over and then gets frustrated because he doesn't want to be on his tummy anymore!

My little guy was also born on May 14th and only just rolled over yesterday! I missed the first attempt but caught the second one. So now he can get over but hasnt figured out how to get back. I just love watching him figure these things out. Im sure your baby will be rolling around really soon.

Hi, My baby girl was born on the 15 th of may , and she hasnt rolled over yet, she does everything else just like your little boy, she does turn or her side but then she rolls back, i think cos she doesnt like to be on the belly and she just not really interested in it :)

hi my little girl was born on the 12th of may and she isn't rolling over yet either. but she is doing everything else that she should be doing. i wouldn't worry yet the clinc nurse told me that they can do anywhere between 4 and 6 mths. every baby learns at a different rate. I hope this helps Xxxxx

Hiya my little one was born on the 25th May and also shows no sign of rolling over...She likes being upright to mch and hates lying down!
Like your little one she is doing everything else she is supposed to-apart from finding her feet,but then she is eating her own body weight in food so her belly is probably to big for her to realise she has them lol :)

My daughter was born on the 12th, and I've only seen her roll over once each way - and I'm pretty sure that was an accident! She really doesn't attempt to do it purposefully, and absolutely hates tummy time. But she's been sitting up by herself for about a month already, so I'm trying not to worry about it.

my son was born may 20th, he has NO interest what-so-ever to be on his belly, he wails when he's on it and pushes himself onto his back because he hates it, but he is NOT interested on rolling from his back to belly

My son was born on May 19th and he started to roll over before two weeks (from back to tummy and other way around) and just starting to lift his legs and he try to sit but not without help, so i think that some ability babies develop sooner some later and we have one job to support them! :-)

My son was the same way! He hated going on his tummy! Hes alittle over 5 months and he just started rolling over himself. He does it from back to tummy cause he's mostly on his back! I thought it would never happen! No worries, when your baby is ready hell roll!!

my son was that way for a little while he was always wanting to be held, i'm a student as well, my hubby works full time so its just me home with him. i found that he loves sitting up and he loves rocking chairs, i got him a little fisher-price rocking chair that vibrates and it has toys that hang over it that he apsolutly adores, its a great way to keep his attention so i can get house work and school work done. also he likes when he lays on his back and has toys above him that he can play with, you might want to try something like that.. hope it helps. :)

My little guy was born May 10 and still hasn't rolled either. I think he's too lazy because he loves to be on his belly, so why bother? He can almost get himself over. He'd just have to flip his arm forward, but he doesn't care. I'm not concerned though. The pediatrician figures he'll crawl before he rolls, so its all good :)

My little girl was born May 31st and she doesn't roll over yet either. She does all the things you said your little guy does and pushes up on her hands really good, but she only rolls over to her side and no more than that. My doctor said I shouldn't be concerned until they are 6 months and haven't done it, but even then it's not a big concern because every baby develops at a different pace. i would say if he's doing all the other things OK then not to worry. My thought about my baby is that she's just too lazy to roll all the way over LOL

Hes my 4th baby and the others did everything right on time! my older son even crawled around 4-5 mos. Zayden doesn't like to be put down at all so i dont know if this has something to do with it or not. i got him a jumeperoo and he will jump in that but other than naps he is always being held and if hes not hes crying.

My son was born May 31st and he started rolling from belly to back but stopped after just a few days and hasn't started again. He gets almost there but tips back the right way, sometimes I'll give him a little nudge and clap and say YAYYYY. So he gets the idea that he'll be praised when he does it hoping it'll help.

My lil guy was born May 27th and he is in the same boat. He shows no intrest in rolling over. Like yours he is doing everything else. My pedi said not to worry that a lot of lil ones dont roll. as long as he is striving else where. My lil one loves to try and sit too. i know if an when he is ready to roll he will. I wouldnt worry.
