Not rolling over

She's still not rolling over. My slowest milestone reacher was rolling over at 3.5 months. Piper is 4.5 months. The doc said to practice with her. I can blame myself some because I don't put her down for long. I don't like to put her on the floor much because my almost 2 year old swarms her! It's me constantly keeping him off of her. Ugh. I guess I need to deal with it so that she doesn't lag too far behind. Anyone else not rolling yet?

Kellen has done it once or twice with in the last 3 or so weeks (he will be 5 months on Sunday) but nothing consistent. He just isnt too interested in doing it much. I was told that its normal for kids to not do it till they are over 6 months, some as late as 8 or 9. Each kid is def. different. The way I look at it is that Kellen is my last baby. I am enjoying everything as it comes, and not stressing about it like I have done in the past with the other kids. Also, The sooner he is mobile, the sooner I have another kid to chase... and I get plenty of that already with the older 3 Wink

If it makes you feel better, my oldest didn't roll over until 6 months. She was on the floor all the time but had no desire to be on her stomach. If I laid her on her stomach she freaked out too much to even try to roll over.

Some babies never roll over or just do it once and don't care to repeat the experience! Plus 4.5 months is NOT late for rolling over at all! I think the milestone is 4-6 months typically? Smile

You guys have no idea how relived I am to know that I'm not the only one whose baby isn't rollling. He's pushing himself up, getting onto his side, but not rolling over yet. I keep hoping it'll happen soon. But meanwhile I enjoy that he's not mobile yet.
