My daughter, just started to roll from back to tummy about 3 weeks ago, will only roll onto her tummy from her left side. I have tried to get her to roll from her right side, but she's not going with it.
My question is, did you guys have this happen too?
That's great that she is rolling over. I think it's common for kids to have one way that they prefer. I would play with her on a blanket or mat on the floor and try to get her to practice rolling the other way. She will get it! ;)
thats what i've been doing i'll keep it up, just glad to hear it's common
My daughter only rolled one direction. She always rolled left. She stills rolls left to help herself get to her feet. I wouldn't stress over it. Some babies just prefer one way over the other!
You guys are really making me feel better! I was kind of worried she might be learning too slow. I know all babies have their own pace.
So glad that this was helpful! :) -Jess
thanks jess (:
Enticing her with a favorite toy is a great tactic. Sometimes we get wrapped up in seeing our children accomplish certain things and hitting milestones, but it sounds like your daughter is right where she should be and I am sure she will roll onto the other side in the very near future.
Thanks AnswerDad i feel a lot better
She's been trying to bear crawl vs actual crawl lol she's prob gunna walk first seems like
They initially learn to do it one way. Some babies go from tummy to back, but can't go from their back to their tummy for a while. It depends on the child. She'll get the hang of it in all ways possible soon, don't worry!
My little man only crawled backwards for the longest time! Hahaha - it was pretty cute but just when I was wondering if he'd ever figure it all out, he went right to taking some steps. Go figure! Babies don't do everything the way we plan out for them too. ;-)
Hey everyone! Thanks for all the help, she started crawling around the 23rd hahaha (: and then started sitting up around the 1st and she's been standing with support since the 4th, so any day now she's going to be walking lol. I guess nothing to worry about (:
Great news! My oldest never crawled... they were worried that she wasn't crawling, then she skipped right to walking. I was worried, but that incident gave me patience and helps me from worrying about this milestone or that milestone. Every child is different and has their own development timetable.
Thanks! (: and yea, maybe I have to high of expectations already
Oh my gosh sounds like she's about ready to go! Let us know when the big day arrives!
