my daughter is almost 8 months old and doesnt crawl. she hates being on her stomach. about 30 sec after being on her belly she will start crying until we sit her up or put her on her back. she stands great. she is starting to pull herself to a standing position. i think she will walk before she crawls. is there anything wrong with that? everyone who hears that she doesnt crawl is like she is lazy or she needs to crawl before walking. does it matter? or they tell me i need to put her down and not hold her so much. but she wont be a baby for much longer and wont want me holding her all the time like she does now. so is it going to affect her not crawling before walking? or is there something wrong and thats why she doesnt want to be on her stomach?
