is it normal? my baby refuse to crawl, but walked at 10-11 months
I wish she did crawl 'cause it'll be easier for her to get up now that she's walking. Also i heard that is necessary for babies to crawl... is it too late? is it that bad? did it happened to your baby?

As long as they are getting around I don't anything wrong with how they do it! My pediatrician told me my son is doing great and he is 10 months and just started to get on all fours to try nd crawl. I wouldn't stress about it simply because abviously your LO is already walking and getting around. Don't stress, all children move at their own pace and most beat to their own drum. Milestones are just guidelines like my doc said. I have three children and they were all different. lol.

some kids just skip that phase. my son arm crawled for ever and never really started crawling till he started trying to walk. he is almost a year now, but you shouldnt worry if your baby doesnt want to crawl or not. its 100% normal!!!!

Crawling is an important part of development. I wouldn't worry, but I would be on the floor playing games in which my baby and I crawled on the floor together. And, I would do it every day.

Two out of three of my kids just got up and walked and never crawled and it has not affected them. Dont worry about it.

Its not necessary for her to crawl.



A lot of babies go directly to walking without ever crawling.
