    My LO will be 2 months old next Tuesday and today I have noticed he is trying to roll over in one direction. He will get on his side and stay there for a minute and then get mad because he can't get the rest of the way over. Is it too early for him to be trying to roll over?

    Hi there!

    No I don't think too early.
    Chayce rolled over 3 times at 2months and 1 week old.He rolled from back to front.
    Every baby develops faster/slower at different things at different stages!:flower:

    No I don't think its too early. Izzy tried at around 8 weeks, it seemed her head was too heavy though and she couldn't quite get there!
    She was just over3 months when she first did it completely.

    yup -- not too early at all! My LO actually went through a stage where he rolled from front to back constantly between 3 weeks and 9 weeks old. Everytime during that age I put him on his tummy time, he would flip to his back! :dohh: Then he got too chunky to get his bulk over! :haha: He started rolling over again at about 13/14 weeks-ish.

    I dont think there is really such a think as too early in terms of rolling/sitting/walking etc. I just let my baby develop at her pace and help her if she needs it. If they're ready then why not let them do it :)

    my LO started rolling over quite early, people used to say to me isnt it a bit early for her to be rolling over, and i was like well how the hell do you suppose i am gonna stop her lol if she wants to do it she's gonna do it, same goes for your LO
    your baby will develop how they want to develop x

    I'm letting him do anything he wants to do. I was just always under the assumption that they roll over much later on, like 4 months or so. Sorry for sounding dumb. This is my first baby.

    Emma flipped from front to back at two months exactly. But it took her over a month after that to get back to front. :thumbup: Every baby is different and yours sounds to be doing great!! :hugs:
