Gross motor skills, : using large muscles of the trunk & legs, progress head-to-toe the 1st year. A baby who gets her head & chest up when on her tummy ( in prone position) at 4 mos. starts rolling tummy-to-side. At 5 mos. she props on her forearms & starts to roll front-to-back. At 6 mos.she rolls both ways. You can't set her in her car seat on a counter safely from 4 mos. on. "Tummy Time" is safest on the floor. ...Read more
