Im not sure about rolling, but I know milestones don't necessarily have to be done in order iykwim, but they do need to be done My middle child went from sitting to pulling up and cruising and basically missed crawling. She did crawl after she started walking, but not much. It has meant that she has some issues with a weak core because of it (she is 13). We never realised it had caused any issues until we were having physio for rapid growth issues and I was stunned that she could not lay on her back and lift her hips off the ned at all!

Yep. My 10 year old has a really weak core. Can't sit still in class or focus because his body fatigues so quickly. A physio said 2 weeks ago that she bets he either didn't roll, or rolled really late. She was spot on. He sat well at 6 months without support, pulled up and cruised on schedule, but didn't and couldn't roll til after his first birthday. It is causing issues even now so I am on top of the fact that my now 10 month old can't roll. I don't care that he can sit.

Rolling is really key for vestibular development. I would continue to encourage her to roll by popping her on the floor and manually rolling her or getting down and encouraging etc. also I’d seek a paed physio to get more ideas.

The past couple of months, she  has rolled  a few times, but only when propped up. She's tried so hard to do it  when flat on the  bed or floor, but couldn't.

Pop her on her tummy as much as possible. Tummy to back is generally easier and it can help her build up some muscle.

Rolling is a milestone....it is not always within a time frame nor in the order that is deemed 'normal'.

It is part of the big picture Minnie. If there are other worrying delays then it is definitely worth getting a second opinion but on it's own at 6 months it is not a delay.
