My 11 month old is not yet crawling or pulling herself up on things. Should I be worried?
My daughter didnt even 'furniture-walk' until she was 13 months and didnt walk until she was almost 15 months and is perfectly able now. She has always been a more cautious kid with physical activity. Whereas my son walked well before his 1st birthday and will climb ANYTHING. Each kid is different and remember milestones are only meant ot be guidleines. But as someone else said, if you feel instinctively that there is an issue, see her Dr.

I learned how to crawl after I learned how to walk. Beforehand to get around I would just lay on my back and push myself with my feet, with my head tilted back looking to see where I was going. Had a huge bald spot on my head from that. It does happen even though all the doctors and experts say that it isn't possible. If it really worries you I would just bring it up at your next doctors appointment.

I wouldn't be worried all babies do it with time. I worked at a daycare and had a little girl that was almost two and refused to stand up and walk on her own. It turned out that mom was carrying her everywhere. Well after about two weeks with me she was walking and nearly running around with everyone else. Some children just need more push than others. Just make sure you're encouraging them to do it!
