Hello moms! My sweet baby boy is 10 months today!! But he isn't crawling or even trying to crawl...he seems like he's trying to go straight to walking he just wants me and my husband to walk around the house holding his arms up all day...should I be worried? Are there any tips y'all can recommend that will maybe help him? I'm a first time mom so of course I'm freaking out a little...

Oh wow thanks so much for the tips! He is rolling a lot of the time when he's just sitting on his butt he leans forward then stops himself like he's afraid to fall and cries until we save him. I have heard of some babies going straight to walking also thank you makes me feel a little better!

Some babies don't crawl and do go from sitting to walking. He should be trying to get around a bit, either creeping, scooting on his bottom or even rolling. You can encourage him by setting a toy out of his reach and coax him to get to the toy. If he spends time in a playpen, saucer or hanging jumper, have him spend more time on the floor so he has more opportunity to work on locomotion. If he has met other milestones as expected, then I would not worry about this, you'll be chasing him down soon enough.
