Wondering When will your Baby Roll Over?

Your baby begins to roll over when he or she is about 4–6 months of age. However, every baby is different and some can start to roll over as early as 3 months, while others may take longer time. So, never leave your baby unattended.

You can encourage roll over in your baby through play. Keep a toy next to the side your baby usually rolls to. If your baby manages to roll towards the toy, appreciate and encourage your baby’s efforts through a smile.

Initially, at the age of about 4 months, your baby will be able to roll over from front to back. During this time, when your baby is on tummy, he or she can use his or her arms to raise shoulders and head and look around or can even reach for objects. Rolling over from back-to-stomach comes later usually by 5–6 months of age.

When to Contact your Child’s Doctor?

You will know that it is the time for you to talk with your doctor if you observe that your baby is about 6 months old and is not able to roll over in either direction.
