My daughter just turned 7 months on 4/30. I am concerned because she is not rolling from back to tummy. She does roll tummy to back but it's like she does this to get out of doing tummy time. I took her to the pediatrician yesterday for some concerns...this one and she also nods her head (like she is nodding yes) and the pediatrician feels this is either undeveloped trunk tone or some benign shuddering and I guess neither one is anything to be concerned about.
Anyways, back to rolling. Does anyone have any tips for getting her to roll from back to tummy? Any tips for enjoying tummy time? I admit that maybe I haven't pushed tummy time as much as I should have and now I am concerned. I have a small boppy pillow that was included in a boppy tummy-time mat. I started using that again today...do you think that is ok?
I would appreciate any help :) Kind of freaking out. The pediatrician just basically said more tummy-time...even if she cries. The milestone charts say she should be rolling both ways by now. I realize that each baby is different...I'll be honest though, it's hard not to compare your child to another.
Sorry for such a long post...guess I needed to also vent :)
Thanks in advance!!! :)
