My daughter will be 8 months on the 19th and has still not attempted to crawl or roll over. She sits up well and plays and stands with help of course and while on her tummy she scoots around in a complete circle and reaches for toys.. I am worried that I am not doing something right.

o wow ok well i guess it worries me because my two older children who will be 7 and 6 this year seems like they were doing so much when they were her age i guess its true then not all babys are alike its been a while since i had a baby that i had to refresh myself thanks so much for sharing your experiences with your babys with me, Im sure she will be doing it soon.

My daughter didn't crawl in the traditional sense till she was 14 months old the next day she let go of the furniture and started walking. She also didn't roll over till she was a year old and that was only to sleep on her belly. She always got around though by scooting on her butt.

Don't worry my daughter didn't crawl until 10 months , and didn't walk until 14 months , but she's now 15 months and can count , says over 60 words, and talks in a few short sentences. Every baby is different and while some develop fast physically others develop fast with speech. My daughter also taught me just bc babies don't do something , it doesn't mean they can't. I was cleaning in another room one day and caught her taking steps, but as soon as she saw me she dropped to the floor to crawl. I caught her walking a few times before she actually would do it in front of me. Maybe she just liked being held so she didn't want mommy to know she could walk lol
