rolling over

Is it too soon for Kai to be trying to roll over? When I lay him down he struggles to get onto his side and then looks like he is trying to roll onto his tummy. I am not sure how to describe it. But I just read that they are usually 4 months when they start rolling over. Is it weird that I am worried about this? Do you think he is trying to roll or that something is wrong?

Wow, I wouldn't think something is wrong, he's probably just a little ahead of schedule Smile

No not too soon at all. Trystan rolled at 13 weeks in his bassinet. He'll always roll over if he's on his tummy (which he hates, so I don't do it very often), but it's perfectly normal!

My friend's baby rolled over at 2 weeks. I wouldn't worry. She is just ahead of schedule, brag about it! Biggrin

Carter rolled stomach to back at 7 weeks. He has been rolling both ways for about a month now and he's just now 4 months.

Thanks ladies. Not sure why I have been concerned. I guess because DH keeps telling me the baby is twitching, which is really just his movements to roll over. But the term twitching never seems good to me!

I am more worried that Mayleigh hasn't rolled yet and she is almost 5 months. DS was rolling one way at 2 months!

Evelyn rolls onto her side all the time but she's not rolling completely over yet. I laid her on her stomach once and she immediately rolled onto her back, but I haven't been able to get her to do it again since then.

No rolling here either, in any direction. I have to "help" a lot and Ryan does not seem to be interested in trying on his own. I figure he'll do it when he's ready.

Finn rolled twice about a month ago but hasn't done so since. I was worried I wasn't giving him enough tummy time and exstinguished his emerging skill. The OT in me wants to practice it with him but he hates tummy time and only tolerates couple minutes at a time. Trying not to over analyze every milestone esp since he arrived early.

Ours hated tummy time with a passion so I didn't do it a lot. I just put them on their bellies for a minute while their bums dried on the changing table. This week they both started rolling over regularly and suddenly they like being on their bellies ... so it can all change!
