Rolling baby!

My 6 month old has started flipping onto her tummy from her back constantly. She won't lie flat on her mat anymore and just immediately rolls to tummy but she can't roll back again so is getting very frustrated. It's really hard to know what to do with her and I can't get anything done at all because she needs me to constantly roll her back only for her to roll and her frustrated again! I'm going to get her a jumperoo but any other ideas for what I could do with her to help her learn to roll back or just to keep her content? Thanks

The chances are she will probably get the hang of rolling the other way quite soon, so this will pass, but in the meantime a jumperoo is definitely a good idea - I used to keep mine in the kitchen so she could jump in it while I made her lunch. Can she sit on her own? If so, my daughter had one of these at a similar age and absolutely loved it.

Thanks for your suggestion! Patiently awaiting a jumperoo and hoping that helps! She's showing no signs of being able to roll tummy to back at all- she gets her hand stuck and even when I fix it she isn't really moving to even try to roll to back. I thought it was the most common way they roll at the start - don't know why she's done it the other way. But any tips to help her learn to go tummy to back?
