Nope!

Not that you should obsess over milestone charts, but here is one to look at...

If she's rolled over already, then she's "ahead" of schedule. And it will happen a lot throughout her life where she will reach a milestone and then not do it again for awhile. For example, my daughter took her first steps at 11 months, but didn't actually start walking until 16 months.

I agree w/tamliz. My DD1 didn't roll over until like 4 1/2 mos. DD2 rolled over once a couple of weeks ago, but hasn't done it again.

Not to worry - my son rolled over once at 2 months old then didn't do it at all until 4 months. He just decided to do it one day and kept it up from then on. He's one now and he took a little longer than I expected to sit up on his own (6 months) and walk on his own (he just started walking right after his birthday). As moms we get kind of consumed with milestones, especially when other children are doing things earlier. There is a wide range of when most milestones occur and unless your daughter is way behind one of these time frames I wouldn't worry one bit. Babies will only do things when they are good and ready!
