i wouldn'd be worried about the developmental delay because there is none. However I would be worried because you baby might NEED to roll if in danger or unconfortabliness and not be able to do so. I would train many times a day until your baby can do it. But there is nothing wrong with not be rolling over at this age.

4 months for both my kids but not regularly until about 6 months. My son walked at 9 months so it's hard to imagine not rolling by that age but then again every kid develops differently and my son did walk earlier then most.

I'd go with your gut and if you're concerned ask her doc

My daughter was 12 months old before she rolled over and then it was only to sleep.

my baby started rolling over at 5/6 months and at seven months she started crawling, now she is 8 months and she is already trying to stand on her own, she stands fully when she is leaning on something.

5 days. He rolled over both back to front left and right. I took him to the doctor because he said it wasn't suppose to happen. I put my son on the table and to the doctors surprise he rolled and rolled and rolled.

every child is different - if you have a real concern, speak with your doctor. my son was very strong and into movement quickly so was rolling over and sitting and such by like 4 months. would have liked a little bit longer to not have to be chasing him around. lol

My son didn't roll at all until he started crawling. As long as bub is healthy and reaching other milestones, no need to worry. :)

Mine started trying at 2.5 months and finally mastered back to front at 3 months and 9 days. She'd mastered both ways by 4 months.



I wouldn't be too worried as she is trying, if she was laying there like a lump and not moving or trying THEN I'd be worried. There are things you can do to encourage her like Daniela did, let her grip your hands and 'help' her to roll over to give her the idea of it make some wheeeee sounds too LOL and have some favourite toys off to the side just out of reach.



All that being said, it's just important that she's moving freely, lots of floor time, no swings, jumpers, exersacuers etc as these things restrict their natural movement and freedom to move.

My little girl didn't roll much. She didn't crawl much either. She would lay on her back on the floor and squirm everywhere. She would be in one spot and a few minutes later she would be a few feet away, still on her back. It was interesting to see how far she would get. She started walking at 10 1/2 months though, two days after my hubby's birthday so it felt like a late gift to him.

My kids only rolled over because they hated being on their stomachs, so they rolled over that way, but never onto their stomachs (without crying). They were about that age.

My dr said not to worry. Rolling over not a milestine to be worried abt. My 2nd rolled over and went right to crawl and then cruising, walking all within a very shrt time.

I honestly don't remember, but I'm thinking maybe never really? I know we kind of took her finger and pulled her over quite often, a bit like extra encouragement, but I honestly don't think she ever did it on her own. She walked under nine months of age, so it certainly didn't hinder her in her development...

My son didn't roll over until after he started crawling! (he could roll to his stomach but not onto his back) I was concerned and asked the dr and he just said, "well, he's hitting all the other milestones and he's healthy. He might not roll until he can tell you why", meaning he might not roll until he's 2. But he did eventually, at around 10 months.
