At this stage, your little might have now learned to control his head and sit on his own with the support. The other major milestone to be achieved in the series of movements of walking, is rolling. Yes, you may think he has already been there, done that, but truth is, now with increased muscle control, your child has a better expertise at rolling steadily.

What you need to know
At this point, you will notice that your little one is doing the little movements known as rolling repeatedly. At 5 months of age, your little one might able to lift his head, push himself up on his arms and might make an arch of his back to lift his chest off the ground. These movements look like pushups. Most probably babies roll first from front to back, but if your baby does it the other way first, don’t worry, the main goal is ''rolling'' that should be achieved. He might also rock on his little tummy, kick his legs and move his arms in the air like he is swimming. It is a great way to understand that your little one is developing his gross motor skills. It is also a positive sign that your kiddo is developing his neck and arm muscles. Above all your, sweetie pie has now achieved a milestone of rolling.
However, if your baby still struggling in rolling, then you are the only one who can help him out. Try to encourage him repeatedly especially to the side he is struggling by just leaving an elusive toy next to that side of him or simply lie down to that side and you will see that he will try to roll to that side to come closer to you. Encourage him by praising his efforts with the smile or a clap.
