Do they just roll in one direction - i.e. from back to front rolling do they always just go towards either the left or right side ? At least at first?

yes they do tend to go one way first

Do they do this for a while d'you know?

yes and once they've got stronger and more able then they start experimenting with other directions, practice-makes-perfect style

might i ask what age they tend to start rolling?
my dd is 3months and is having a real good try trying to get from her back to her front although im told they do it from there front to back first witch she has not started doing yet.

Normally they'd do back to front first I think (my 2 have)
And I think starting at 3 month is wuite early

From about 3 mths stary, although usually most babies are rolling by 5 to 6 mths.

I was also told that rolling back to front was first, then front to back. Although front to back strikes me as easier!

my ds1 did it at 4 months
my ds2 is approaching 6 months and can't be bothered grin

DD started doing this yesterday, from back onto right side only so far. She is 14 wks.
