Rolling over

At 4 months of age, the infant can roll over, which makes it vulnerable to falls from dressing tables or beds without rails. Switching objects from one hand to another is incorrect because it does not prove a threat to safety. Crawling and standing are incorrect because the 4-month-old is not capable of crawling or standing.
