Maybe get one of those playmats that are really colorful and let him play on that. Seb rolled at about 3mos IIRC. Your baby may just get irritated because it's not fun. We had a barnyard themed thing for play time and it had linkadoos that hang from the top. Get down there with your baby and play and sing, it worked for us!

My dd rolled over at 6 months, 4 days.

Her ped said bigger babies sometimes are delayed. I wouldn't worry about it yet.

My activity mat did NOTHING to inspire her to roll over.

Yeah I have a play matt it's barn yard too with the link things he likes to lay under it but not on his belly, he rolled twice at the begining of his 4th month but never again. I think the 1st 2 rolls were by accident.

my ds

started rolling around on a constant basis around 6 months. He also *just* started crawling last week and he's almost 10 months old.

They all do things on their own time Click here to enlarge

Ds rolled right at 3 months and it freaked him out so much that he didn't do it again until he was 6 months Click here to enlarge

Piper started rolling around 4 months and we would have "group" tummy time to encourage her. Basically we got the cat and her brother on the floor and they would be silly and she would just watch on her tummy. Around 6 months she figured she could roll to get stuff and then it got really interesting. I have NEVER seen a cat move as quick as our cat moves when she learned to roll.

One of mine never learned to roll - consequently, she never learned to crawl either and got around by shuffling on her bottom! She started walking at 14 months (far later than my others), but after that, all was well! So don't worry, all babies are different!

Each of my children hit the developmental milestones at different rates. My youngest is almost five months and started rolling over a few weeks ago, just from her back to her stomach. The other day she rolled from her stomach to her back, but it was just that one time and she hasn't done it since. I have a co-worker whose son was born two days after she was and he hasn't attempted rolling at all yet. My older daughter, who is almost 3 now, started rolling over when she was six weeks old; my oldest son was closer to six months.

If you're really concerned you could try encouraging him to roll by placing him near a toy that he would have to scoot or roll to get to, and by laying next to him on the floor to play. You can also lay him on his back and sit with him, playing rolly games where you roll him over, to get him used to that motion.

I have found the remote for the TV or the phone to be great motivators. Pretty much anything that they are not supposed to put in their mouth.

Hannah rolled about 2 weeks before she turned 5 months. So, 4 1/2 months old...

DD1 (now four years old) rolled at 3 months, crawled at 6 and walked at 10. DD2 (now almost 9 months) didn't roll until 5 1/2 months. I was sure she was going to do everything later, but she started crawling at 6 1/2 months, and now cruises...I imagine she will be walking in the next 2 months.

They definitely all do things in their own time, but I understand how hard it is to not compare when you have an older one that hits milestones early.
