It's different for every baby. My oldest didn't crawl 'til 12 months but started walking a week later! My youngest crawled at 7; walked at 10 (both girls). I have a friend who'd daughter didn't walk until 18 months. As long as your doctor isn't concerned, I wouldn't worry about it either.

There is no answer to this question. All babies are individuals and it's not a competition. It will happen when it happens. Some babies don't crawl at all, they bum-shuffle or go very quickly to walking. Most things I've read suggest that if a child is not walking by age 2, there may be a problem.
