Babies typically start rolling over between 4 and 6 months of age. However, it’s important to remember that all babies develop at their own pace, and some may roll over earlier or later than this range.
Rolling over is an important milestone in a baby’s development, as it signals the beginning of their ability to move independently. Most babies learn to roll over from their back to their tummy first, as this requires less strength and coordination. Once they have mastered this, they may start rolling from their tummy to their back as well.
To help encourage your baby’s development and support their ability to roll over, you can provide plenty of supervised tummy time, during which they can practice lifting their head and strengthening their neck and core muscles. You can also provide toys and other objects for your baby to reach for and interact with during tummy time, which can help encourage them to move and explore their environment.
It’s important to remember that all babies develop at their own pace, and there is a wide range of what is considered “normal” when it comes to developmental milestones. However, if you have concerns about your baby’s development or if they are not meeting milestones within the expected time frame, it’s always a good idea to speak with your pediatrician, who can provide guidance and support.
