Should I be worried that my son's not mastered rolling over yet?
 
He'll be 6 months on April 4. He can sometimes roll from his tummy to his back, and for a while did it a lot, but lately it almost seems like he's forgotten how to do it. :headscratch: And he hasn't yet figured out how to roll from his back to his tummy. I just read that babies should be able to roll over by the end of month 5, but what exactly does that mean? Does that mean they have mastered it by then?

DS is at or beyond all of the other milestones, he just can't seem to get into rolling. He can stand while holding on to something, he is really starting to figure out how to tripod sit, and everything else is great, but I'm worried about the rolling over. He's not a heavy kid. He's 17 lbs and 27 inches, and his arms are TINY. His legs are where all is strength is, really.

Should I be worried? What can I do to help him out here?

I know he *could* do it, but the last few times we did tummy time, he would sort of try to roll over, but couldn't figure out where to put his arm--like he forgot or something. :headscratch:

Hey! Your DD is only 4 days younger than my DS. :goodvibes:

I wouldn't worry about it. Emma never really *got it* when I thought she would, but once she started crawling and pulling up, she just rolled over, too. I honestly think she was just not interested in doing it until she needed to in order to do other things.

Cool. I know I *shouldn't* worry about a lot of the things I worry about. It's just that every once in a while I have a tiny freak out. :giggle2:

Thank you ladies, for confirming my suspicions that I'm a spaz. :giggle:

You are definitely not a spaz -- you're a mother! :hugs:

My niece actually just recently started rolling over...and she's 11 months. We all knew she COULD do it, she just didn't want to. The ONLY reason she started is because she started crawling, and she was a pro at it right away, so she just never wanted to. Some babies are just willed to do what they want, when they want, and there isn't a thing we can do about it.
Your LO is doing great...especially if this is the only milestone you're worried about!

The other milestones are being met. I would say just continue to work on his tummy time and building up those arm muscles. That is the biggest suggestion I would have. That would also help build up his back muscles as well, which is very important. Does he do a lot of tummy time. I would suggest that he has it even more than the average child if his muscles are pretty tiny in the arms.

He sounds like a pretty good weight! Everything else sounds great mama!! Some kids may not be rollers. Perhaps it's just not an interest of your childs.

i know how you feel...but you're not a spaz..it's normal to worry sometimes. and I bet that he's just fine. My son did that same thing...it just didn't interest him after a while. :)
