My daughter is 7 mths and a couple weeks and she hasn't yet got that far. She will "butt scoot" though if she needs to reach something or go somewhere, hehe =)

My baby daughter is 6months old and she has been doing the whole on all fours rocking back and forth thing for about 6 weeks now....she can bum shuffle he way across a room in no time and get from one end of the room to another.She can get around and she is happy with that. My 3 yr old son was crawling by 51/2 months, my other 2 boys by about 8 months. My 3 and 5 yr old both started walking at 10 months but my oldest son, now 13, didn't walk until he was 14 months old. All babies are different.

My daughter just started crawling in the last couple of weeks. She is 10 mths old. She hadn't shown many signs of crawling until the few weeks before. Each kid does there own thing! My child development book says that around 7 mths babies develop the ability to belly crawl / commando crawl and crawling on all 4s usually 9-10 months. Judging from the posts though, this does vary alot.

My son does not seem interested in crawling at all! He is almost 9 months old and I think he may be one of those that skips crawling and just walks. He is trying to pull himself up in a standing position.

My child pullling herself up at about 4 months--true crawling at 5 1/2 months--walking unassisted 9 months. Some children don't meet certain "medical milestone" but don't look at it as a probem--some babiies will walk at 2 and the baby is fine. Each child is different. Always follow up with your Pediatrician.

My son was crawling at 6 months and had been pulling and walking along furniture at about 7 months. He's been walking all by himself since 10 months and right now he's 11 1/2 months and practically running around everywhere!!!

My son started to crawl and pull up at the same time at around six months. All babies are different so dont fell stressed if yours isnt crawling yet. Believe me when they start crawling it is a race because they start getting into everything!

my daughter was was starting to rock herself back and forth around 5-1/2 months i think. She finally crawled in July, so she would have been 6 months by the time she was crawling. Once she got the hang of it, she really took off lol. it was hard to keep her still. Before that she would just roll and wiggle her way around. i was always astounded by how far she got that way lol. Now shes 9 months old and she's walking, she started on the 6th of this month, the first night she was doing really good, and then up untill tonight, she really wasnt doing well. but she was wondering all over the place tonight. I found it was the same for her crawling too, she'd be doing really well one day and then the next it was like she forgot she could do it.

i dont really know what an average age is for crawling, but ive heard of some kids just learning to crawl at a year.

Hi, My son started the crawling position at 7 months. He got on all fours and started to move back and forth. They call it the pre-crawl! It's really funny bc they look like their dancing or hunching lol. But he's actually crawling now and he started at 8 months. And boy is he on the go. It's like he's so happy he can crawl he doesn't know how to act!

My son didn't start crawling until he was about 8 1/2 months - but then he went right to walking about a month later.

It seems to me that my kids all started doing these things around 5-6 months old, but I wouldn't be alarmed if it is later than that. Some babies start as young as 4 months and then as late as 9 months. I would put your baby on their belly as often as possible, that really helps them to strengthen their neck muscles and they will starte getting around a lot faster that way.

My 3 yr old NEVER crawled, and was walking by 10 months, he did start pulling himself up around 7-8 months, like in standing position. My 9 month old daughter started getting up on all fours around 7 months, army crawling at 7 1/2 month actually crawling about a week later, and now she stands up and walks along everything :o)

our little girl never crawled. she never even attempted it! she would roll everywhere she wanted to go and started pulling up to standing at 10 mos. then she started creeping along the furniture and on her first birthday, she let go of the table and walked on her own. she is now almost 15mos and still has yet to attempt to crawl! But she never liked to be put on tummy time so im guessing thats why?

My oldest started crawling at 8 months old, but just before that, he would prop himself up to a standing position against the sofa before he fell on his rear end again. lol His younger brother never crawled; he scooted from a seated position at 7 months. Possibly motivated by his older brother already walking. Anyway, he went from scooting to standing up and taking his first steps, scaling the sofa and the walls at first, then on his own.
