My LO had reflux early on and spent more time upright than on his stomach due to all the spitting up. Our doc assured us that he'd still get strong from staying upright, and that he'd catch up once tummy time became more comfortable. We just did it as much as possible and followed his lead. Once his reflux improved at around 5 months, we were able to do more TT. Two weeks ago, at the 6 month mark, he still couldn't roll either way, and spent more time on his elbows/forearms. A week later, he was pushing up on his hands and trying to roll. And today, at 6.5 months, he's finally rolling from front to back with ease. Still not front to back, but he'll get there soon, I'll bet.
All this to say, they'll progress when they're ready, and sometimes they gain the skills quickly. Don't worry - it's hard not to compare, but every baby is truly different.
I think today was literally the first time I saw Jack prop himself up on his hands. And he did it for exactly 2 seconds before he face planted.
And he only rolls back to belly! However, he is super close to army crawling. Go figure.
