My daughter scooted on her bottom until 10 months, then crawled for a day and walked. They are each unique so don't compare your little one to all the others. There are so many books and people out there who would have you believe there is something wrong with your child for whatever reason. I found I was a happier and more relaxed mom when I put those books away!

My son was cruising along the furniture before he was crawling. He started crawling at 9 months, but was cruising since 7 & a half months.

My Son crawlled at 10 months. Every baby is different and if you compare against others you only end up getting upset thinking that your baby is behind. Enjoy your baby, dont rush the milestones.

Diane didn't want to crawl... and the first time she did it she was almost 1 year... she tried to walk instead. Which is very common for babies to not crawl but walk instead. Don't worry if it takes a while. She just may be one of those walkers first !!

This post is very helpful. My daughter is 7months and still isnt crawling. I was getting worried but it's good to see there's a wide range of what is 'normal'

My son learned to get into a sitting position before he became mobile. He started doing a commando crawl at around 9.5 months and was properly crawling at about 10 months. He is now 12.5 months and walking all over the place.

Every child has a different rate of developement. Your child could be crawling by 6 months and not walking till about 14months. Or your child might even skip the crawling stage and go straight to walking. My little one was crawling by 5 months old, and cruising around furniture by 8 months, but didn't start walking till 13 months. So it all depends on your little one, :)

my son started to crawl at 7 months and started walking dec 19th he was 13 months old when he started to walk and is trying to run also lol and he isnt even 14 months yet lol its a fun and great time and if your son is getting up on all fours try to put something infront of him out of reach that he will want that might help him get going also

My daughter never crawled....she would scoot on her butt, until she decided it was time for her to walk....On the other hand my son crawled when he was 7 months. So as you can tell each child is different.

I don't remember (I know, I'm bad) but my husband thinks it was at around 9 months. For some reason I think it may have been before that, but I'm not sure. I blame the baby for my memory loss...

I agree. Most of them will try to start scooting between four and six months, and usually are crawling by nine.

Most babies will be crawling by 9 months. However, my son was walking at 9 months but did not crawl until15 months. Each child is unique.
