How to Teach a Baby to Roll Over (The Ultimate Guide)

As your baby grows, there are countless little milestones worth celebrating as they constantly develop new skills and abilities. Though you're probably looking forward to your baby crawling, she must accomplish another milestone first: rolling over. One day soon you will set your baby down on their playmat and look away briefly only to find that they have rolled off of it.

Rolling over is one of the very first physical developmental milestones (gross motor) that your baby will reach. Learning how to roll is important for your baby’s muscle development and a precursor to sitting up and crawling. The first moment that your baby moves without your help is quite a moment to remember. All of a sudden, they aren’t so helpless anymore, they can move!
