I think my DS2 was like this, at this age. Sitting ok, but not interested in being on his stomach. I only got him to go on his stomach by putting a mirror in front of him to make it interesting.

He's three now. Runs and climbs and plays football, the whole thing. Nothing to worry about.

My DS didn't roll over on purpose (did a couple of times by accident) until he was able to crawl at 10 months ... he is now an active soccer playing 5 year old ....
DD (who is 12 months) only rolled from front to back at 10 months .... and now will only roll over on to her tummy sometimes ... she can but she doesn't like being on her tummy so she doesn't do it very often. She is an active and fast bumshuffler with no interest in crawling. When she was 11 months I took her to a paediatrician about her skin and he said she was absolutely fine developmentally and just doing things in her own way ....
Don't worry about your DD, just give her as much tummy time as she can handle (even 5 minutes a day) and let her do her own thing ....

thanks a lot, you know what its like, feel like all other babies are doing more stuff.

I know what you mean chickyboo ... all my DD's little friends are walking and DD isn't even pulling herself up ....

When do they start to sit up, my DS is 6mths and is not to keen on sitting he'd rather stand or laydown.

smasher, my DS is 23 weeks and he is exactly the same. Loves standing up or lying. He tends to puke when he sits, but then he will spend the whole time doubled in half trying to suck his newly discovered toes.
Something tells me it will be a long, long time before he sits independantly

i can't wait until my DS starts sucking his toes it looks so cute

DS didn't sit well at all until he had been walking for a while. I think some of them just have their own idea of a development schedule.

Chickyboo, my dd1 didn't roll over until 10 mo and was walking by 12.

Smasher, my dd2, who is very long for her age, only really sat up unaided at around 9 and a half mo, even though she rolled over really early. By ten mo she was crawling.

Chickyboo, don't worry!!! my ds never rolled and hated being on his front altogether... but there's absolutely nothing wrong with him and he's now a healthy, happy 4 year old

My ds was rolling over both onto back and front at 3 1/2 months, but then he didnt sit up/crawl/cut teeth till 9 months, dont worry they all develop at different stages!

Thing is, as babies can't read they don't know what they are 'supposed' to do according to all the books ....

They all do things in their own time... my child was crawling and cruising before she learnt to roll! I really shouldn't worry!

DD didn't roll at all til around 10 mnth just before she crawled. I was a little worried at the time but realise now that they all do things at different times and her big tummy was obviously weighing her down!!!!

My best mates two kids never rolled over until they could crawl, both quite normal happy healthy kids

My older two never rolled. They are now perfectly normal 5 and 9-year olds. dd2 learned to roll at the weekend -- aged 14 months. A family first. Oh, how we cheered...
