6 month old baby not rolling

Hello. I have a six month old baby girl. She was rolling at 5 months from tummy to back only, and now at 6 months she is not rolling any more. When she does not want to be on her tummy she is starts complaining and does not roll.She is also not very good at sitting. Should I be concerned?

There is no need for concern.Many babies seem to stop rolling over for a while when they are at this age and are getting ready to sit. Try to place her on her back and help her to roll over.Make a bit of a game of this. Your baby is getting ready to sit and that is her next important milestone.
