When I put him on the floor he is rolling all over the place and has been for a month and a half. He is way ahead of schedule, he is 4 months weighs 20lbs rolled over for the first time at 6 weeks. He is also already holding his own bottles. He is a tough little guy. When he gets on his tummy he is kicking his little legs like he is trying to go somewhere. Is this him trying to crawl? And if so how can I help him, cause he gets so mad and starts fussy cause he isn't going anywhere.

oh i know its so cute when they are doing the turtle !! my boy started proper crawling at around 4 and a half months and from the stage your bubba is at it was only a week or two before he figured it out , its so exciting your baby sounds like a fast learner so he will be crawling very soon !!

Quoting Michelle:

Ha, my little girl is just 7 months so is at the age where she should start crawling and she is doing the exact same thing. Ill put her down on her back and she flips heself over and starts trying to army crawl and when that gets her nowhere she gets up on her knees but hasnt figured out how to get on all fours yet, she also gets really fustrated but i just leave her to it. I encourage her with words telling her she can do it and clapping her wen she figures somthing out. I also put a few toys just out of her reach and her dad crawls around the floor trying to show her but she just laughs at him. I figure thatr she will figure it out herself like she has done everything else.


I try and tell him all the time "You can do it" He just gets so mad when he goes no where. lol. I put toys infront of him too but I think that makes him more mad. He is doing the same stuff though, the army crawl and raises his butt and knees up.



Good luck, I hope she crawls soon.
