Am I worrying about nothing?

DD started to roll from tummy to back around 3 months. It got to the point where she would roll over almost immediately whenever we did tummy time, so I pretty much stopped doing it. On Tuesday I put her on her tummy again, and she rolled 3 times.

However, today it was like pre-rolling tummy time. She was okay for a minute or two, then started to get antsy and put her head down and sucked on her hands or the blanket. Then she just got plain mad, but still wouldn't roll. She pushed up with her arms a few times and it looked like she was close to rolling, but she wouldn't actually do it. 

So now of course I'm afraid that not doing tummy time for awhile has made her forget how to roll (even though she just did it 2 days ago). Am I being silly?

Re: Am I worrying about nothing?

  • I'm sure she didn't forget.  My LO has a day or too where her fuse just seems shorter than normal and the same thing happens to her.  Normally, she would roll but on these days she just gets frustrated.  I wouldn't worry :)

  • I wouldn't worry too much.  Rhys will do that sometimes when he wants to move forward, but doesn't know how to.  He's all, "Da crawling won't work, imma just nom on dis hand instead"

  • Nah, I wouldn't worry.  It's common for babies to stop doing something while they're working on figuring something else out.  DD rolled belly to back when she was just 2 1/2 months old, but as soon as she figured that out, she stopped doing it and spent the next month trying to figure out back to belly.  Once she had that down-pat, she started rolling belly to back again.

  • I almost posted about something very similar to this a few days ago. DS has been able to roll belly to back for awhile now. Just a few days ago he went back to belly. But started getting mighty pissed, mighty quick because he couldn't roll himself back onto his back. It was like he totally forgot how to do it. He would face plant into the playmat or blanket and scream his head off until one of us flipped him. But later that day, he rolled himself back and has been a rolling fool every since. Today I video taped him rolling from one end of the rug to the other back and forth. I'm sure your LO is having something similar going on. It's like doing both blows their minds and they have to adjust to their new cool selves, haha.

  • I wouldn't worry I thought the same thing. My LO rolled over a lot about a month ago then stopped. She likes tummy time so she just stayed on her tummy. But she rolled over yesterday and today. So I think some days they like to do a skill and some days they don't.

    I have been concerned because dd has rolled from belly to back since about 2.5 months. But now she is rolling like crazy from back to belly then screams until we flip her over. It's like all the practicing of rolling the other way and she forgot. It's messin with my sleep to because she rolls over at night then screams.

     

     

     

  • I def wouldn't worry about it- my little guy did the same thing a few weeks ago and now he's back to rolling belly to back again. She didn't forget. ;-)

    haha. This literally made me laugh out loud.

    And kleigh, don't worry, she's not regressing. :-) As others have said, sometimes a skill they have learned will be neglected while they're figuring something else out.

  • Do not stress mommy :)  This is totally fine, and totally normal.  Everyone knows how to roll both ways by college....I tell myself that about everything :) 

    My DD rolled from tummy to back first.  But then she figured out how to roll from back to tummy and forgot how to get back and would just yell and get mad.  That lasted a couple of weeks.  She has just now started rolling from tummy to back again, but not every time.  And she only rolls in one direction either way.  The learn things, then learn new things, then remember the old things and repeat.  

    FWIW, I never really did much tummy time until she was probably 2 months at least, and still not a ton.  I did it more when she started enjoying it more she she was a little more mobile/could hold up head.  She practiced head holding over our shoulders until then.   

    Enjoy your baby, ignore the books and don't stress :) 

    We are so thankful that our second daughter, Lillian Elizabeth "Lily", was born healthy and happy on February 11, 2013.  We love her to pieces.  

    We lost our first daughter, Hannah Grace on May 4, 2011.  She was buried on May 14 during a beautiful service at my home church. We are grateful that if she could not be here with us, that she is healed and whole with the Lord. We look forward to the day when we will get to meet her. We love her so much.
