Hi, I need help.. My baby girl just turned 3 months and she still is not rolling over. I put her on her belly everyday before each feeding, but she doesn't seem to like it after 5-10 minutes. What can I do to make her roll over?

what do you place her on? just the floor? a mat that has different designs? that have those play mats that are designed for tummy time... my kids LOVED THEM, they ALWAYS were having tummy time... they were VERY advanced though, i have a picture of my oldest daughter at 3mo old standing at the couch...

but each kid progresses at their own speed, as long as he/she is talking and walking by the time kindergarten comes around that's all that counts

Woww.... thank you for your message... I don't feel that bad now. My mom and dad also told me that I was late for walking.. maybe this is hereditary. lol.. Thanks for your comment.

It's still early days. You can try putting an interesting toy just out of reach or getting down there with her. You are still well in the "normal" range. Some kids just straight up like to do things when they want. My first couldn't roll over at 7 months. I kid you not. All her gross motor was late (bum scooted at just about a year, sat up from lying down at 14 months, crawled at 17 months, walked at 21 months) and there was nothing physically wrong with her. Never know what you're going to get I guess. My second has been pretty average.
