My 13 month old girl does not crawl only does bum shuffling. she does not pull herself to a standing position and only cries badly if she cannot reach anything above her. Is this normal?

Thanks for your reply. I have checked with her doc when she was 11 month and he said she is happy and health. But my parents have really strong opinion on "baby has to crawl"

Oh, and my daughter (and son) never crawled. My son went straight to walking (from rolling to places occasionally) and my daughter sat with one leg in front of her and dragged herself across the floor. Not every kid will crawl. But one thing is for sure, if they want to get around, they will figure it out.

Nope. Nothing wrong. Neither of my kids walked until about 15 months. My own pediatricians kids did not walk until about 18 months. if you are concerned, def as your doctor though. But it can be completely normal. Every kid is different and will hit mile stones at different paces and times.
