My son is in crawl mode, he hasn't quite figured out how to move those knees to keep moving. He gets up and rocks back and forth. Are there any others out there with the same behavior or are they crawling? Just wondering

Quoting Mikkii:

awww...my baby balances on his tummy with his arms and legs stuck straight out in the air and sort of kicks and flails, but that's about it. i think he's too chunky to lift himself up...he weighs about 20 lbs :)

my son started to turn when he was 3 months, he loves to be on his stomach, he tried to move but wasn't strong enough.

When he was almost 5 months he started to get on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. Now (at 6 months) he is a good crawler, I just have to be careful because he doesn’t care about thins like tables or even the wall, he will hit his head and try to keep going anyway, and he loves cords, computer, paper, pens everything that is dangerous for him.

My baby has figured out all the moves for crawling now he is working on arm-knee coordination. He scoots his knees forward to his hands, and then lunges forward and does it all over - he moves pretty good like this! It is pretty funny to watch!

My little guy just yesterday started to move his legs as if he was going to get up on his knees. He hasn't yet gotten up on them. But he's going to figure it out soon, I can tell!

My daughter started scooting backward. She can get up on her hands and knees and rock, but she hasn't figured out how to move forward yet. I think it's only a matter of time before she puts it all together.

my son is only 13lb 8oz. He was born small too. I think every baby just goes at their own pace. Im told my son is very alert for his age. So I dont think you should be concerned. I know some babies that haven't started crawling until they were 8 months!

my daughter is nealry 6 months old and isnt carwling or even trying yet, she has only just started to like being on her belly, she dont roll over has only done it occasionly. so is she behind for her age? am getting a little concerned now reading other stories. but i will say shes only a little girl shes was only 14lb 14oz when weighed on monday. so is it shes just to small to do it yet or what? she was only 6lb 5oz at birth to.

My little girl isn't crawling yet, but she slides herself around, she just has not lifted up her upper body enough. I know my nephew was doing the rocking thing for a bit before he started to crawl.

My son is 5 months old... just last nite we laid out some blankets and toys. We sat him down and then had to put him on his tummy - which he HATES for some reason. He wouldn't move his arms, just his legs would be flaying every which way! He gets frustrated and just rolls himself over onto his back but then minutes later he'd be on his stomach again! Is it just too early? I want him to crawl!!

My son is doing the same thing. He has almost got it to where he can move his knees but not quite yet. He does a lot of rocking though!

Yep, my son does the same exact thing your son does! Yesterday he made his first attempts at crawling by moving one knee after the other... things are going to get interesting now haha

Amelia realised a few weeks ago that the quickest way to get to where she wants to be is to roll! There's no stopping her now! Since she realised this she's stopped going onto all fours and trying to crawl like she used to!

Mine does the same thing! He kinda just shuffles his little knees along, then props himself up into sitting and the goes at it again, sometimes right down into a belly flop. So he slowly makes his way around!
