This is just idle curiosity. Both my kids rolled over back to front and about 3 months (DD just yesterday <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">). Of course, I googled to check she was on track and it said that most babies roll front to back first. I was wondering if this was true. I'm not worried, just curious.

My DD went front to back at about the same age, but not back-to-front until about 4 or 5 months

My kids are early rollers, they both <i>literally</i> flipped over from their backs onto their bellies at around 3-4 weeks. I only know this because we co sleep and they'd be belly down in the night. Once I saw them do it they flip like a little fish or something. Belly to back was harder for both of them, but I want to say 3 months for both. My kids are really mobile and freakishly strong as babies. DH and I make babies who want to be toddlers and run.

Back to front @ 3 months, front to back @ 4 months. I'm sure she had the strength to do it earlier, but not the motivation. My weirdo baby LIKES being on her belly!

Back to front here. But we never did much tummy time until Jo liked it, which was once she was strong enough to hold herself up better.
