Olivia will be 5 months old next month and hasn't even attempted to roll over. Should I be concerned? And what other things could I try to help her learn to roll over?

My daughter didn't roll over to at least 6 mths even with tummy time. she is now over 2 and doing fine, she is actually very strong for her age.

I agree. tummy time is so important, even if your baby cries, she will still be gaining upper body strength. Ask your doctor too if your really concerned.

Since we have started recommending back to sleep to prevent SIDS, babies are a bit slower on some of the milestones like rolling over, sitting up, etc. Make sure that Olivia gets plenty of tummy time while she's awake so that she builds up her upper body strength and she will be rolling soon. She may not like tummy time if she's not used to it, but start for about 10 minutes at a time frequently during the day. Place some toys in front of her so that she has to work a little to reach them.

They will do it on their own, give her some time. Don't push it. Go to babycenter and look at milestones.
