  • All babies are different and have different abilities.
    My first rolled over at 4 months, my second not until 6 months.


  • I guess all babies are unique and different.


  • All bubbas are different! DS1 rolled over at 12weeks, DS2 rolled at 4months and DD is 6months next week and only rolls to her side and has not yet rolled from back to tummy. She hates tummy time! She has rolled a few times from tummy to back.

    A friend of mines baby rolled over at 8weeks.


  • My little bub is 4.5 months and she has only rolled a handful of times, but spends alllll day trying! where as my oldest was crawling by now! Each child is different


  • Every baby is different. My 1st was at 3 mths…. our second has yet to at 4mths yet she does a lot of other things….


  • My 4 week old rolls from tummy to back and has done so from 2 weeks. Se also rolls from side to side. This is because she is very top heavy (i.e. she has a big head). She is not rolling from back to front yet and hopefully she won;t for some time.


  • My son started rolling at 7 weeks from belly to back. It took him longer to start rolling from back to belly though.


  • Yes, once they start rolling, then the fun begins! They work out rolling can mean getting to other places.


  • All babies are different. I have four children and all started rolling, crawling and walking at different times. My fourth stated to move side to side around this time so it’s a great start.


  • Unusual, but within the normal curve.


  • between 10-12 weeks.. but having said that all babies are different.. they will roll when they are ready..


  • Yes, my two kids started rolling at different age. My two girls started rolling at about 10 weeks.


  • yes definitely


  • Two of mine were about 3 months or so, the third was rolling at 2 weeks! They are all different.


  • It’s possible to start rolling early. Each baby is different and you might find they do it once then they don’s do it again for a while.
