    Default 7 month old rolling

    My 7 month old only rolls from her back to her front (yep it is unusual for them to learn to roll this way 1st normally it is from front to back)

    anyway i am after tips to try and help her learn to go from her front to her back as she rolls from her back to her front all the time and then instantly gets upset on her tummy cause she doesn't know how to get back.
    i have tried extra tummy time but it hasn't seem to be much help

    try putting her on her tummy then you get yourself on your tummy infront of her and pretty much roll over so she can watch you. Put a favourtie toy for her to roll towards.
    She will just do it one day, it all about practice.

    Default 7 month old rolling

    I used to put ds on his tummy then wave a toy in front of him to get his attention. Then slowly lift the toy up till I was standing with it.
    This made him arch his back to lift his head, which caused him to roll back over.
    He scared the bejeebers out of himself the first couple of times but it didn't take long before he figured it out
