Feeling a little disappointed. At 15 weeks old today, Stephie just rolled from her front to her back for the very first time, and I totally missed it because I was in the kitchen doing something else at the time. One of these day's I'll get a roll on video.
Oh cat. Don't worry, you will catch it soon - once they get it going they don't stop!!
My initial thought was that you were disappointed that she rolled, which is how I would have felt (strange I know!).
With DS I was so excited for every new thing he learnt and really pushed him along, where as this time I just want my baby girl to stay a baby as long as possible!
DH keeps making her do tummy time cause I 'accidentally on purpose' forget to do it when I am on my own. They really do grow up too quick!
I can't wait till he rolls but he is my first and he used to wiggle so much as a newborn that he was always rolling onto his side but now he's a little chubbier guess it's too much effort as he'd rather like on his back and stare at the ceiling. guess we just have to wait till he's ready!
You are right Bedlover. Now that Ellie can roll back to front she won't lie on her back and is constantly rolling. And she's pushing around the floor backwards! They do develop quickly but I'm pleased for her as she was getting so frustrated not being able to do anything for a few weeks there...
I know the feeling Catlover.. Same thing happened to be a week ago.. I left DD on her tummy cane back 5 secs later and she was on her back!!! I put her back on her tummy and grabbed the camera and she wouldn't do it again I'm sure we'll get to see them roll soon... I'm with you Bedlover... They are growing so fast and it's nice to leave them in one spot age know they will be there when you get back! Lol
Rolling babies!!! When is that supposed to happen? E is doing lots of baby crunches these days - thinking its related?
I've just started to get interested in mcns... Disposables seem so great... Until you go through a big box in less than a fortnight! I'm over thinking about how that all adds up so I've got some nappies coming to try out. Starting with baby beehinds and itti bitti tutto, but saw some hippybottomus yesterday and so cheap I want to give them a go too. Also thinking about getting the reusable wipes set up off cheeky bums. Anyone got any experiences?
I read somewhere (can't remember where), that some babies can roll one way by 3 months, about half can do it by 4 months, and most can do it by 5 months. Also it said that most babies can roll both ways by 6 months.
