Don't worry about it. If you want to encourage her, get one of those crib mirrors and rest it against the couch or something while she does her tummy time. She'll probably roll and surprise herself just trying to see that cute baby in the mirror!

My daughter didn't roll over either until pretty late like 7mon. She is just fine. She is 13 mon and were still trying to walk too.

No there is nothing wrong with her. My first daughter never rolled over at all, she never crawled either. As LeAndra said just give her lots of tummy time. If she hates it then do it frequently for short periods of time ie 10-20 times a day for 1 minute and as she gets used to it just increase the length of time.

No thats nothing to worry about. Just make sure your giving he lots of time on her tummy so her muscles will get stronger. She mite cry but it's ok all babys do because they don't like it but it's good for them. Just never put her to sleep on her tummy. Hope this helps.
