Is my 7 month old the only kid who refuses to roll over or crawl?

My 7 month old son sits up by himself very well but because of his acid reflux he refuses to be on his stomach. Therefore, he doesn't roll over or crawl. Is this reason to worry?

my 3 year old wouldnt crawl forever. when he did start rolling over he couldnt stop rolling. he was so chubby it was like rolling a ball. he was 9lbs 1 oz when he was born. but when he did start to crawl he only did it for a short time before he walked. now he is a happy 3 year old that is very capable of anything he wants to do. if you still have concerns contact early childhood intervention and they work with children to help before school age. they will tell u if he is behind or has any delays.

Not at all :)

My son is now 8months old and although he was very sick when he was little and we didnt get back out of hospital until he was 3months old he sounds alot like you little 1, he has been sitting by himself for atleast 3 1/2 months but he wont roll over from his back to his front and isnt really making any attempt at crawling.

Dont worry bout it..he'll do it when he wants too
