View Full Version : What age?
Hey guys, i posted this in the firends section too, but thought i may put it here as well...
My question is, at what age did your kids lift their head off the ground and roll over?
Charlee is 18 weeks now, and she still hasn't lifted it. She just lays there. She rolled from back to tummy on Wednesday (got her arm caught though), but hasn't done it since. I'm not necessarily impatient, i'm just kinda starting to worry, since i thought she should have lifted it by now, or at least tried to?
Hi shazbutt, my DS started rolling at 9 weeks, only for the fact that he hated being on his back and spent most of his time on his tummy.
Try not to worry as all babies develop at different ages. Try and put your bub on her tummy several times a day for a few minutes to build up her strength.
They all do it at different times. I figure so long as they walk and talk by school they're on track ;) Did you know that sling babies have better head control than babies who lie or are propped? Pop bubs in a sling when you're out or doing housework and you'll see that little head popping up in no time! And sling babies rarely do tummy time either - my son hated being on his tummy but he was a sling baby so he held his head up from about 12 weeks. :) It's all normal, remember!
Not too sure what is "normal" but DS had very good head control from birth. Even as a newborn he would lift his head off the ground when placed on his stomach. He rolled from his tummy to back when he was 3 days old:eek: and started rolling back to tummy from 3 mths.
As the others have said each baby is so different so I wouldn't worry too much. I use to put my bubs on their stomachs and sit at their head end, this way they would try and lift their head to look at me.
Hey Shazbutt, (I love saying "shazbutt" it just rolls off the tongue!)
Little dude only started rolling from back to tummy yesterday, and that would make his first time at 5 months.
Now he has rolled he is soooo excited about it I can't stop him! It is quite funny, he rolls himself over and over and ends up off his matt and onto the cold floor. Then he looks as me with a "what happened" expression.
Now I am a proud mother blathering on.
So I think that just reinforces what everyone else has said - all in good time for your little one.
