My son is 7 months now and just before turning 7 months he started the rocking stage. And I just cant wait for him to get moving. I kno they all have their own starts and stages. But how long after ward did your child / childern start to crawl?

My son just turned 4 months and is already doing this. He's going to look so funny if he starts crawling soon because he's so tiny. He's always been ahead of the gang though. He first rolled over at 3 weeks!

My son started the rocking at 5 months, and just started crawling this week! He is almost 8 months. He did the inch worm thing before he crawled as well.

Depends on your son, but if he's got the motion, he may get going quite soon. Once he figures out how to move one hand and one knee forward he'll be off in no time. My son crawled at 8 months.

my daughter started crawling about 2 weeks after ' the rocking' all i done was place something like a toy or drink just out of her reach and it encouraged her to move, all children are different like you have already said. Hope your son starts moving soon and causing mischeif :)

My lo started rocking about 6 months and a week before he turned 7 months he was crawling. He is now only 3 days past 7 months and he is pulling himself up on things. Getting big quick and doing things our friends 7 month old isnt close to doing.

Thanks I cant wait to see his improvement. He moved a leg further under him then tipped over I of course I was saying yay and clapping. That made him cranky... hes not big on all the happy noises. So nap time it is. Some time I wonder how difficault it is to be an baby....
