My 6 month old son will get into the crawling position but hops to his destination, sometimes he will stop to look at his legs or he will lay down on his belly. He will not crawl which I know takes time, I'm not rushing him but I do wonder why he is constantly putting himself into the bear crawl position? He gets his feet flat on the floor and often brings them in so close he topples over and face plants often leaving him crying with a bloody mouth or nose and a fat lip. I want to say he is trying to skip the crawling all together and others have said this as well, am I missing something?
