My daughter is almost 6 months old. She was born at 34 weeks and spent 2 weeks in NICU. She hasn't rolled over yet. Should I worry about this?

So she's about 4 months adjusted? Well within the range of normal for "not rolling over yet"!

My ds didn't roll over until he was 9 months actual, 7 months adjusted. A bit late, but he can roll all over the place now!

If you are significantly worried about her development (though I might wait a month or three to see how she does if she seems fine with everything but rolling over?), you should call your county Help Me Grow or whatever your area calls Early Intervention (google Early Intervention and your state).<br><br>
Then call them and tell them your concerns. They will usually do a free evaluation of her development.<br><br>
My son was 34 weeks (nearly 35), but needed no NICU time. He had other problems.

8 months uncorrected age and he just started rolling over, he's a 33 weeker. My 29 weeker didn't roll over until 9 or 10 months now he's almost 7 yrs old and runs like the wind!<br><br>
It's normal, keep in mind the corrected age for milestones. I used to worry all the time with my 29 weeker but learned to be at ease with it when I realized he's just going at his own pace.

My baby didn’t like sleeping on her stomach; I knew she was able to roll because if I put her on her stomach she would roll over onto her back. 32weeks, rolled at 9 months.<br>
Good Luck!<br><br>

I'm from Streator. It's a small town about an hour and a half southeast from Chicago. This weather is horrible! The kids didn't have school today because of all the ice. More is expected tonight. My poor husband works outside. I feel so bad for him!!
