My lil guy will not crawl and I don't expect him to do so today or even tomorrow I know it takes time. I'm confused because he will get into the crawling position and then hop on his knees or drop back to his belly but his favorite thing is getting into the bear crawl position and moving slightly forward this way, why would he be doing this and what do this mean?

And your friends are right, not all babies crawl, but it sounds like your little guy sure is trying.

Well, just make sure he is on a carpeted area on his ventures. My son NEVER crawled, he went straight to walking at 14 months. My daughter did a very abnormal crawl with one leg tucked under her body, and she dragged herself with the front leg. i guess you can call that a crawl. She cruised then she finally walked on her own at 15 months.

Just have him in a safe area, cause he is just learning his body and does not have control. You cannot keep him from doing it, but you can keep him safe. Good luck.

I have had people tell me that he won't crawl he will just walk which I thought all babies crawled. And I worry because he gets ahead of himself and smacks his face off the floor causing something to bleed either his nose or mouth.
Thank you!

LOL it sounds like he is having a great time learning to move around. Video tape him and enjoy it. Don't worry, he will figure it out. Sounds like he is on his way.
