I'm just curious as to what age your children started their milestones.

My daughter was rolling over by 2months

She also is walking backward on the walker at 5months

and starting to crawl at 5months.

She's been eating solids since 4months.



Is all this too early or is she on schedule?

My sister is 6months and she just started rolling over.

Every baby hits their milestones at different times. Alot of it depends on how much you hold them or let them do things on their own. Does your sister get held alot?
Our daughters started doing the same things at about the same time. She is 8 months old now, and started pulling her self up as soon as she learned to sit up, and she walks too, as long as she has something to hold on to.
But like I said, every baby is different and learns at their own pace.

I think that every baby is different. My daughter Peyton didn't start rolling over until she was 3 months when she started rolling over, started sitting up by herself at like 7 months, and started walking backwards in her walker around 8 or 9 months old. but she started crawling around 7 months old too. She took her first steps on her 1st birthday and now she is walking around all the time...she is 15 months old. I am one of those people that is always worried that something is wrong...my boyfriend is always telling that she is fine and that she is going to do things when she is ready....not when I am ready..lol Hope this helps. :]

My son (almost 4yrs) has done everything earlier than the "average". I've recently had him assessed by a psychologist & he's slightly above average for his age group (except speech- he's got better speech/language skills than 75% of children his age). However, this doesn't happen with all children who reach milestones "early", after all they are only a guide- the age an "average" child will do those things. Every child differs & unless they are months behind the average there's nothing to worry about.
Just be careful with solids- a baby's digestive system isn't able to process solids properly until at least 6months old so unless your doctor/paediatrician has told you to start your daughter on them you should have regular check ups, just to be safe.

I have always been told that every baby is different and will do something when they are ready. my daughter is 9 months old now, she rolled at 3 months, started solids at 5 months, walked backward in walker at 6 months, sit up alopne at 6 months, scouches bakward at 8 months and is still not crawling at 9 months.... but she has 8 teeth

My daughter never rolled over.. she still won't! At 4 months she would sit there unassisted. 5 months could pull herself up to stand. 7 months was walking around the table. 7.5 months crawling. 12 months could stand with out holding and 13-14 months was taking her first steps to walking. She is now a running, talking and happy 15 month old. It is funny how things work, sometimes they start doing things later but rush through milestones within such a short period of time that they end up walking etc earlier than other babies. Other times it's the opposite.

My daughter started rolling over at 2 months. and crawling by 3 1/2.. and i started her on baby food at 3 months.. and she started standing up by herself at like 5 months. and she just started walking and she is 11 months. she started walking about 3 weeks ago.. and her doc. said she was on the rite track.. but i have ran into diffucilty because she will not eat baby food since she was 5 months old. she has been eating solid food. but her docter said that was fine.. and you baby seems to be on a good track!! its a very very very wonderful thing to experince!

It depends on the baby =] My daughter was holding her head up when she was a new born and my mum said I didn't do that until I was 3 months and yeah so..

My son was rolling around at 3 months, crawling by 8 months, sitting up at 9 months, and walking by 11 months. He was born a month early, so I consider this pretty on-schedule.

Your son seems on track. I think 6 months is kind of old to be rolling over. My son was rolling over around 2 months, he started crawling and pulling up at month. We started him on solids at 4 months.

Our son rolled over from stomach to back at 2 months was sitting at 4 months, crawling at 6 months, walking around the coffee table at 7 months and walking at 10.5 months. It seems as though your daughter is doing well :) However every child is different which is maybe why your sister is 6 months and just rolling over.

Michael started rolling over at 4 months, HATED the walker, but started walking at 9 months on his own, he was pulling up at 6 months ( we had to rid our living room of the coffee table and the end tables =) ) He had an inguinal hernia which they did say may have stunted the time he pulled up and started walking because we didn't get it repaired until he was 5 months. I didn't give him solids until he was 6 months per order of the pediatrician. We didn't give meats until the pediatrician said it was ok as well. I am very cautious when it comes to food because of so many food allergies in my family. All kiddos have milestones at different ages, there is no right or wrong unless they are a year old and haven't done any of these things. (at least that's what I've been told) Some kids talk faster than others, some form sentences faster than others and it doesn't mean that the child that takes longer to learn things is any different than the child that talks or walks really fast. My dad was a child psychologist and he said that by age 5 all things even out and that's when milesones are more of a marker. Be proud of your kiddo for doing things as early as she did, but the other kiddo is still on track and I am sure will excel just as well as any other child her age.

when ur baby is ready to do something she will. the milestones you read about are just ideas of when your baby will start doing something. if your baby is ready to crawl and eat solids she will let you know. if its not hurting her continue what you're doing

6 months is pretty late to be rolling over... my daughter rolled over after 2 or 3 months, and was making crawling motions (without being able to push herself) by 4 months. i also started giving her baby food at 2 or 3 months... some doctors will tell you to wait on the baby food, but if they are showing interest, and are more hungry than for just a bottle, theyre fine.
