Q.

he doesn& #39 t want to be left on his tummy

hi, my son is 6 months old but he still doesn' t want to be out on his tummy and as a result he is not showing signs of rolling over from his tummy to his back. i' m not sure whether he is too lazy to exercise his lower body/tummy muscles or perhaps he is feeling pain on his tummy. should we be worried? should we take him to a physiotherepist? please send me ur recommendations! thanks!

Your son's behaviour is probably quite normal, but he should be able to roll himself over by now. So just to be on the safe side it may be a good idea to ask a physiotherapist to assess his progress.
