when did your little ones start crawling?

Jeremy was pulling himself places at 2.5 months (nuts to see and scary), so it wasn't surprising he was fully crawling at 5.5 months, pulling up and crusing at 6.5 months and full out walking at 8.5 months. To each baby their own, he has certainly cruised faster than his sister hit those milestones.

Every child is different. My oldest daughter started low crawling (pulling herself with her arms and dragging herself on her belly) when she was about 6 months old, then crawled on all fours at 7 months. My newest daughter (who is 9 months old) started low crawling at 7 months old, but did not crawl on all fours until she was about 8 and a 1/2 months old (two weeks ago to be precise). Every child is different and they'll crawl in their own time. Some do not even crawl; they go straight to walking. If your child is not crawling or walking by a year or more, then I would be concerned and would ask your pediatrician. Otherwise, enjoy the lack of mobility because the babies get into EVERYTHING once they are mobile. LOL!

my little guy just turned 9 months and has been crawling since he was 6 months. He also is standing up all on his own and straight from the ground without holding on to anything. he's taken a few steps but hasnt started walking. but i agree every baby has he/she's own time to shine :]

Sa'mya will be 9 months on the 25th and she still isn't crawling, but she gets on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth. She also scoots backwards but then gets frustrated and doesn't want to be on her stomach anymore. She loves to sit up and even rocks from side to side and also back and forth in the sitting up position when she dances to music or is happy about something. I was worried about her crawling too and she doesn't seem to have rolling over completely mastered either, but i wouldn't worry if I were you, some babies don't crawl until 10 or 11 months or so, and then your life will never be the same! LOL

cool!! the other day i decided to see how much mucle strength she had in her legs and stomach and put her up on the couch and she held on to it and stood for a full 2 minutes !! i know shes supposed to crawl first but hey it was just a try . she still ends up flopping forward which we dont know why. ( really it is a slow move forward) she is tryingto get up on her knees but so far unsuccesful unless we put her that way. it'll come to pass soon enough

Logan started to get up on his hands and knees when he was 7 months old , not crawling at 7 months just learned how to get up on his hands and knees.
Then a week after he learned how to get up on his hands and knees he learned how to crawl ........EVERYWHERE! Lol.
Then at 8 months he started sort of standing on his knees while hold into something.
And now at 9 months old he is standing on his feet while holding onto something, BUT that doesnt mean he stops crawling lol! He still will get into everything! :)

Alex started off doing 360s to get around around 6 months but started to do the army crawl around the 8 month mark exactly, it might have been about a week prior to that. Now, a few weeks later he is pretty quick with the crawl and in the blink of an eye he is off to the races.

mine was reverse crawling for about at about 6.5 months then at 8 months starting to crawl forward on hands and knees inbetween the backward crawl and then going forwards she used her hands and feet to crawl. they are all difrerent.

not really as i said Tempe doesnt sit up straight its more like sinking into the ground after a short time they just need to gain mucle strength if he isnt sitting up by 11 months id find a good peds to see. look around and ask i have one who gives me weird instructions, so ive been told about an excelent one to go and see.

My son will be 9months on the 28th and he does his own version of crawling for the past three weeks or so. Its like de pulls himself around his stomach never leaves the ground. He can (and does) get anything he wants though. He seems to really prefer rolling to things more than anything. It is hilarious to watch him go...Is everyones baby sitting up all the way all the time unassisted? James still needs a little support from a pillow or something should I worry?

thanks guys :) my girl is only starting to try and pull herself up onto her knees but still prefers to roll as fast as lightening!! its good to know that even at months there are babys who still prefer to just laze about and 'cruze thru life' as it were. i know she'll do it in her own time. personally, im glad she still hasnt gotten to crawl as we have been doing inside kitchen and bathroom renos and the last thing i wanted was 2 kids zipping about!!!. the GP and Peds doc were worried thinking she may have some mucle strength issue as she has only just (though not up straight) sat up by self and learnt how to get onto her tummy.
Dont you just love it when they say 'oh theres nothing really to worry about ' but thye make a big issue out of whatever it is ?lol

Nathan has just turned nine months and he still isn't properly "crawling". He has figured out that he can get around just by dragging himself (I think thats harder than crawling!) and he doesn't seem to see the point in crawling!

Katelyn was mobile on her stomach at about 6 months, but not strictly what you would call crawling. She starting crawling properly about a week ago, so about 8 months. I wouldn't worry too much, because some baby's don't crawl at all.
