I’m not an expert on infant development or anything, but aren’t they supposed to be able to roll over by now? Little Mochi is four months old, and he hasn’t even learned to roll over yet. My cousin’s baby started to roll over last month and he’s only 2 weeks older than Little Mochi. Strange. I’ve been told it’s because he is so chubby that all the baby fat gets in the way of him rolling over.
In a way, it’s great because I don’t have to worry about him rolling over in the middle of the night and hurting himself or rolling off the bed when I turn my head for one second. But is he developing ok? The pediatrician didn’t seem to make much of deal about it. But if you’re a first time parent, you know exactly what I mean. I’m paranoid and overprotective. I am constantly worrying about his development.
If he hasn’t learned to roll over yet, then when will he begin to learn? He doesn’t even try to roll over. I would assist him by pushing him to the side, but he simply turns right back on to his back! Should I be worried? Or is it really just the baby fat? And if it is the baby fat, does that mean all his other milestones will be shifted to the right?
