What a nite.Umin slept through the nite, he normally sleeps threw the nite but just makes noises when he wants his dummy.But last nite he slept in his big bed.His grandfather gave him a three quarter bed so he slept on it for the first time last nite.It has rails all along it.He enjoys his new bed so much.He is starting to say words just TATA or TIETIE and now his dad is trying to teach him to say PAPA it is so funny he just looks at his dad and then he starts clapping his hands or laughs at his dad

lol my son was the same way-he rolled everywhere with the result he didn't crawl until 10 months. We used to put him on the floor with the remote a foot away from him to encourage him to crawl. He still loves buttons at 2 1/2!

♥ If he rolls everywhere then chances are he's perfectly fine. He may or may not ever actually 'crawl', but he knows how to get where he wants... and that's the main point in crawling anyway. ;)

Thanks alot for everybodies reply.Yesterday we went to visit his grandparents and his sister who is 14 BIG GAP and she sat with him and there he started to put his bum in the air and making his legs straight.I was so impressed with him but i must also say he did it with a pear in sight.

Hi , look all babies are different like 1 mum said he might not want to craw he might go straight in to walk . Does he sit by him self ?? and have you tryed having tummy time and puttin toys around him . Or you can lay him on his tummy try to lift him on all fours with you behide him and gently push his feet forward just for him to get the feel and you never know he just do it .try to do that with him for 30 mins every day and see.but if he might surprise you and take his first step.All the best darls

Put him on his tummy and put a toy he wants just out of his reach, so he has to figure out how to get it.

Does he roll or scoot to get places? Many babies don't 'crawl', but find other methods to get around. If he's NOT getting around in any way I would speak to your doctor about getting him evaluated. Everything may be perfectly fine, but if he's in need of any assistance... I'd rather know sooner than later. :)

Sometimes babies skip crawling completely and head on to walking. Every baby will do things at different ages so don't worry:) My son is almost 9 months and JUST started crawling 1 week ago. I was getting worried thinking why hasn't crawled yet?? BUT all of a sudden he started to and now he is unstoppable:) he gets into cords, the garbage...you name it lol
