Crawling (backwards) but not rolling

My DS is 5.5 months old. For the last few weeks he's been crawling backwards. Since about 7 weeks he's slept on his tummy, which I know is why he's likely to be crawling so early.

He's got really good core strength - able to hold a plank (!) and is also sitting unaided for long periods. Also likes to stand up and "jump" up and down.

But he's not rolling and has ZERO interest in trying to.

I'm not worried, but should I be??

No, do NOT worry! they all do things in different orders and at completely different times, sounds like he simply has discovered much more exciting things to do!

Both my two crawled backwards first BTW, for ages, and very fast and accurate!

I remember rescuing them all many times from under armchairs when they backed in and got stuck. Oh the piteous wailing...

He might have reversed off the bed on to the floor the other day [hmmm]. Cue big thud and even bigger wail - oh, the guilt!
