Just curious which month your baby reached these developmental milestones.

1.Rolling Over

I know all babies are different and baby girls generally do things earlier than boys.Do you have a boy/gril? Also what was your due date and your baby's birth date. It think it depends on how soon or late they are born too.

What can I do next?

Mine had delays, and it was frankly so long ago I could not begin to tell you, but I wanted to put something out there for you, becuase is can be very damaging to a youngster with a delay if Moms beleive that girls and boys have different milestone expectations. They have identical expectaions for all these milestones, and though many moms beleive that there is a difference, I want to restate it, just so no mother ever waits on getting an evaluation that her child may need becase she mistakenly thinks that boys develop more slowly. They don't in the normative standards.

Never wait on development, if you get an evaluation you don't need, it is far better than not getting one that you do.

What to Expect the First Year and What to expect the Toddler year are great books. You can read the month where your child is and it will talk about general milestones for that month.
