And thats scary! lol He did it a few times last week at only 9 weeks old... He rolls from his back to his front. He first gets on his side from his back by desprately trying to eat his hands (cause hes a suck for comfort baby but hasn't quite worked out a thumb or finger yet! lol)...and then last week he just decided to keep on going...took a few minutes to work his arm out but then bang - he was on his front. I thought freak occurance so I put him on his back to see if he would do it again...and he did! He did it for a third time today! Hes not doing it on purpose yet I don't think - he just tends to end up on his side (hes good at that as well cause we do a lot of side-lying feeding! hehe) and then I guess figures he may as well keep going in that direction! lol

DS1 couldn't do that until he was like five months old!!!

Woohoo! He'll be mobile in no time.. better start babyproofing!

DD1 rolled over at 12 hours old, and DD2 started rolling over a few days along.
I told my midwife, but I think she just thought I was exaggerating or something, because she was shocked when DD2 almost rolled off her couch at a 3 week visit.

I've heard a theory that being born "late" makes babies roll over sooner.

Becky was my only 'early' baby, and is by far the earliest roller. yeah... she rolled off the couch the other day. Mom of the year! I'd seen her roll front to back on accident a few times, but she had to have rolled back to front to get off the couch. Sorry I underestimated you Becky!

Well DS1 was only three days 'late' - whilst Hamish was only just five days 'late'. So nothing major. DS1 did everything in his own sweet time - will be interesting to see what Hamish does! hehe

Oh Ivory - poor Becky!... DS1 fell off the bed at two months. I have no idea how he did that either (I mean - he was little mr vegetable for ages! lol)! He was in the middle - I turned my back for a minute to put laundry away. I felt terrible. Mostly cause he fell on his FACE!...and had a bloody nose too! I thought I had brain damaged him! - The midwife and health vistor just laughed at me! Apparently that kind of thing happens far too often. So far, I have been lucky with Hamish! - Hes been much more lucky in all sorts of ways though! lol

DD1 rolled off the bed when she was a few months old, too. All I did was run to the bathroom to pee, and she was sleeping when I left.
Luckily it was laundry day, and there was a pile of laundry next to the bed, and she fell right onto that.
I peeked around the corner, and saw she was gone from where she was on the bed, and I had a split second of panic before I saw her grinning at me from the laundry pile, like she pulled a practical joke on me on purpose.

Heidi rolled over from back to front at 3 weeks old and has now started rolling from front to back. My second daughter progressed very early too. She was crawling up our stairs at 5 months, standing at 6 months and took her first steps at 7 months so I totally expect Heidi to be mobile quickly.

Adam rolled about a month ago, but he is also over a month older than most of your babies. I can't believe how big he is getting!!

Oh, man! Sprout show absolutely no interest in rolling (at 13.5 weeks), even when I help him get onto his side and tug gently on his arm! I mean, if he just fell over he'd roll over! But, no, he goes right back onto his back.

Ada has rolled from back to front several times, mostly on accident. She can roll on purpose if she's on something sloped like my chest or the couch, and she tries on flat hard surfaces but can't quite get the momentum to flip over yet 90% of the time.

My older DD never really rolled...she did a little, but she never like rolled across the floor or anything. She also never crawled! But she sat up on her own at 4 months old. And at 9 months old one day she just stood up out of my lap and walked away. It's funny how differently each baby develops!

DD2 shows no signs yet but I am not surprised. DD1 was able to roll from belly to back at 6 weeks old, but it only lasted for a week or two. She didn't roll again until sometime around 9-9.5 months, didn't crawl until 10.5 months and didn't walk until 14.5 months. I hope DD2 is the same way - I loved it! It was a great having a baby who stayed where you put her!

Yeah - DS1 was pretty slow with most things (sitting up at 10 months, crawling at 11, walking at 18)...and I LIKED that a lot!!! He was mentally ready at those stages as well - which helped. Which is kinda funny, cause he started out realy 'strong' and 'fast' too (everyone was sure I would have a handful with him!). And then - just completly stopped/slowed down with it all. I hope Hamish does the same - but its all really interesting how different they are! Its like a new little present I get to open every day! hehe

Cecilia started rolling from front to back around 8 weeks. Now, at 13 weeks tomorrow she can almost roll from back to front; she gets 3/4 of the way there and then flops back to her back. It's super cute.
