What the Expert Says:

Most babies start to roll over between 4-6 months of age.  They straighten their legs between 4-8 months old.  A lot depends of "presentation" meaning how they were born--face first vs. feet first. The legs are folded the last few weeks of birth therefore, some children seem to show this more than others.  Ask your pediatrician about it.
