How on earth will my 11 week old ever figure out rolling over (or anything else for that matter) if she refuses tummy time and won't be put down fir anything longer than 3 mibs? I'm tired of carrying her around.

She'll get it eventually. Mine won't be put on their backs. Ever. Slept on tummies with no "back time". So they rolled front to back first. Then quickly learnt the other way as they hated being on their backs. Yours will probably do the opposite.

My 7 month old ds HATES tummy time but still rolled/grabs toes/wriggles in circles...don't worry, they figure it out! His neck maybe isn't as strong as it could be but his head hasn't fallen off yet so I'm hopeful he'll make it through to toddlehood! My mum told me to set my baby down or I'd never get anything done...she was right, I now get things done and ds isn't showing signs of any lasting trauma wink

Tummy time has only been a 'thing' for a few years. Everyone managed fine before that, so don't worry.

DD1 refused tummy time (would scream blue murder!)
She rolled at 12wks, walked at 9 months.
DD2 also hated tummy time, so much so that she rolled tummy to back at 9wks to get comfy! She turned fully at 14wks and walked just before her 1st birthday.
Dont worry about it, my girls didn't have tummy time and they learnt just fine!
